Bunker Hill and Place

     So here we are, on Breed's Hill, looking at the scene where Warren fell, Dr. Joseph Warren, that vital patriot and professional man, a man of action and thought.  Place.  The same ground, the same space, walked by this man over two centuries ago.  Here he fell, shot in the head, and bayoneted. A British officer found the body, waistcoat removed, but the fine shirt distinguishing the dead man.
