Bunker Hill Monument image
(Range: 3 miles)
Fifty years after the battle, the Marquis De Lafayette set the cornerstone of what would become a lasting monument and tribute to the memory of the Battle of Bunker Hill. The project was ambitious: construct a 221-foot tall obelisk built entirely from quarried granite. It took over seventeen years to complete, but it still stands to this day atop a prominence of the battlefield now known as Breed's Hill. Marking the site where Provincial forces constructed an earthen fort, or "Redoubt," prior to the battle, this site remains the focal point of the battle's memory. (Curated content from www.nps.gov)

Old South Meeting House image
(Range: 3 miles)
On December 16, 1773, as many as 5,000 colonists packed this building to resist a shipment of taxed tea. After hours of negotiations, the people failed to come to a resolution with the royal government. A signal must have been given soon after, for some 150 men with soot on their faces and varying interpretations of Indigenous dress stormed out of buildings nearby and made their way to the tea ships at Griffin's Wharf. After hours of work, the men destroyed 342 chests of the imported tea. The British Crown viewed this resistance as treason, and the punishments brought the war closer than ever. (Curated content from www.nps.gov)
