Battle of Bunker Hill - A Redcoat Victory

This clip, from the PBS series - Liberty! - recreates (and explains) how the first major battle of the American Revolutionary War began (on June 17, 1775).  It was fought at "Breed's Hill" but is known as the "Battle of Bunker Hill."

Although the Patriots won the first part of the battle, they ultimately lost it when they ran out of ammunition.  It was, however, a costly victory for the Redcoats.
