1) Caption reads:  This is a monument commorating one of the greatest battles in Colonial times, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and was the first real battle fought by the English and Revolutionary forces, June 17, 1775. Although the Revolutionists were forced to retreat, it was really considered a victory for them, as they were compelled to retreat on account of lack of ammunition, but soon after this battle, the English evacuated Boston.
