Description:

The Bunker Hill Monument is 221 feet tall, and sits on Breed's Hill, the location of the first major battle of the American Revolution. Set on a Charelstown hill this Freedom Trail stop draws a huge crowd. With 294 steps you can climb at this free historical site, you may get in free, but you'll pay with your stamina.  "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes",  is the order attributed to Colonel William Prescott to make sure that each shot would count.
