Sixty-eight years after the battle of BUnker HIll a 221-foot granite obelish was erected to commemorate June 17, 1775. The battle lasted less than 2 hours. Of the 1.400 to 1,800 colonial soldiers, 300-500 were captured, wounded or killed. Of the 2,400 Bristish soldiers and marines, 1,000 were killed or wounded. The Seige of Boston became a stalemate that ended a year later in March 1776. Originally an 18-foot wooden pillar stood in its place to honor Dr. Joseph Warrent, a patriot, physician, and political activist who died during this battle.
In 1902 the granite lodge was opened next to the obelisk to house a stature of Dr. Warren. Today it is open to the public and you can walk the 294 steps to the top.
