Newspaper “The Weekly Magazine or Edinburgh Amusement.” 30pp. octavo, August 3, 1775, which includes news from Boston and from the American Congress, including “An account of the late actions on Bunker’s Hill” and reads in part: “...I will only tell you that Gen. Howe was sent out with two thousand five hundred men, or better, to dislodge a body of our troops on Bunker’s hill. On the first attack our troops gave way. They did not expect so heavy a fire. General Howe rallied them. For near a minute he was quite alone. His aide-de-camp was killed at his side...” More. About very good condition. The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on June 17, 1775, during the Siege of Boston in the early stages of the American Revolutionary War. The battle is named after Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Massachusetts, which was peripherally involved in the battle. It was the original objective of both the colonial and British troops, though the majority of combat took place on the adjacent hill which later became known as Breed's Hill.
