Bunker Hill Day

Amidst all the excitement about the arrival of Napoleon's Wars: The 100 Days, I almost forgot to note that today is the 235th anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Famous among school children, it was in truth a very important battle which influenced the subsequent course of the war immensely. It made Gen. Howe, in particular, extremely reluctant to assault American fortifications.

I wrote an article about the aftermath of the battle for Command Magazine and also a review of the Bunker Hill game that was in that issue.
