Beyond the Square Lecture
The quiet elegance of Bunker Hill Monument and Monument Square belie the bloody events that took place there on June 17, 1775. There are many contradictions to this battle — we celebrate a battle that we technically lost, and many forget that the battle, known as the Battle of Bunker Hill was not confined to this 4-acre square atop Breed’s Hill.
Join the Charlestown Preservation Society and National Park Service as they prepare for the commemoration of the battle. Refreshments will be served.
