Who fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill? Listen to a ranger dressed in period clothing discuss why three men from different backgrounds stepped onto the battlefield. They each had different ambitions, motivations, and concerns. The program concludes with a musket firing demonstration!

Programs are held outside the Bunker Hill Monument and last approximately 30 minutes.

This program has ended for the 2022 summer season. We look forward to you joining us for this program next season!
