Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Brochure of Bunker Hill: With Heliotype Views

So a force of men was sent one night, under command of Col. Prescott, to erect some earthworks for the protection of Bunker Hill. His men were mostly farmers: they had no uniforms, and carried fowling-pieces without bayonets. They formed on Cambridge Common, and, after a prayer by Pres. Langdon of Harvard College, marched at nine, p.m., June 16, 1775. Col. Prescott was at the head, preceded by two sergeants carrying dark~lanterns.; and the intrenching-tools, in carts, brought up the rear. They marched so silently, that they were not heard; and the bells of Boston had struck twelve before they turned a sod. It was finally decided to fortify Breed's Hill, as being nearer to Boston, instead of Bunker Hill. The work was soon begun. As they worked, they could hear the sentinels from 'the British men-of-war cry, Ali's well! As day dawned, the newly-made earthworks, which had been raised about six feet during the night, were Seen from the ships, which began to fire on them, as. Did a battery on Copp's Hill in Boston. The Americans; protected by their Works, were not at first injured by the balls, but kept steadily at work, strengthening the intrenchr'nents, and making, inside of them, platforms of wood and earth, upon which they could stand when'ordered to fire. Early inthe 'day, a private was killed by a cannon-ball, when some of the men left the hill. T 0 inspire confidence, col-prescott mounted the parapet, and walked- leisurely around it, inspecting the works, giving directions to the officers, and encouraging the men by approbation, or amusing them with humor. This had the intended effect; and the men became indifferent tothe cannonade, or received the balls with repeated cheers.
