Nathaniel Philbrick “Bunker Hill”
June 6th, 2013
There comes a moment in every revolution, writes Nathaniel Philbrick, when neutrality is no longer an option.
In the American Revolution, the Battle of Bunker Hill may be that moment.
Philbrick’s new book “Bunker Hill” puts the storied battle in sharp new relief, to underscore its importance in shaping the war that was just beginning and the new nation that would result.
And while the book is filled with the “usual suspects” – Paul Revere, John Adams, Sam Adams – Philbrick also introduces us to a man who should be in that same pantheon, Dr. Joseph Warren, who may have done more than any other single patriot to choreographing the revolution.
