"Don't Shoot Until You See the Whites of Their Eyes!" -June 1775, The Battle of Bunker Hill - American Minute with Bill Federer
General Howe disembarked 2,300 British soldiers, ordered them to fix bayonets and charge up the hill.
Twice the Americans repelled them, but the third time they ran out of gunpowder. There were nearly 500 American casualties, including the notable Dr. Joseph Warren. Over 1,000 British were killed or wounded in this first major action of the Revolutionary War.
