Nathaniel Philbrick talked about his book, Bunker Hill: A City, A Seige, A Revolution, in which he recalls the lead-up to the first large-scale battle of the American Revolution, the Battle of Bunker Hill. In his book, the author recounts that Boston, then a city of 15,000 inhabitants and under British Army occupation, witnessed numerous conflicts between the local populace and soldiers following the Boston Tea Party eighteen months prior. The political climate spilled over on April 19, 1775 at Lexington and Concord and was succeeded two months later at Bunker Hill. Nathaniel Philbrick spoke at the Coolidge Theater in Brookline, Massachusetts. close
