On June 17 1775 the unfortunate Battle of Bunker Hill took place It is one of the most important colonial victories in the US War for Independence This battle made both sides realize that this was not going to be a matter decided on by one quick and decisive battle The conflict between the two foes started before 1775 through a situation of taxes and disagreements At the actual battle the loss of men on the American as well as the British side was great however the British seemed to take the harsher beating in the end The battle of Bunker Hill was not just an event that happened overnight The battle was the result of struggle and hostility between Great Britain and the colonies for many years Many of the hard feelings came as a result of British laws and restrictions placed on them It would not be true to say that the battle was the beginning of the fight for independence It started around the time of the Stamp Act and the Intolerable Acts The Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament to raise money for repaying its war debt from the French and Indian War This act placed a tax on printed material of all kinds including newspapers advertisements and legal documents The British government did not expect such a large amount of protest from the colonists as they did The colonists were angry because they had no representation in the government Sometimes the colonists responded with actions of destruction like the Boston Tea Party The British responded to this rebellion by imposing the Intolerable Acts four laws designed to punish Boston and the rest of Massachusetts while strengthening British control over all the colonies The Battle of Bunker Hill started when the colonists learned about the British plan to occupy Dorchester Heights The colonists thought of this as the last straw and they had to protect their land
