What battle did Colonel William Prescott say 'Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes'?

To conserve ammunition during the Battle of Bunker Hill (the American Revolution).More Information:The Americans (rebels) had been poorly supplied with ammunition. They needed to save as much ammunition as they could. What they did use needed to be as accurate as possible. The closer the British were when they fired, the higher the kill rate.

Why did the colonists dislike the proclamation of 1763?

The Proclamation of 1763 created a line territorial line west of the 13 colonies. This line was intended to prevent the colonists from moving into the land used by the Native Americans. The colonists were angry about the Proclamation of 1763 because they felt they had the right to move onto this land if they wished to do so.


How did guerrilla warfare help the American Colonists defeat the British?

Advantage 1 - Americans knew the terrain, whereas generally the British did not. General Howe actually did know the terrain since he was on continent fighting against the French and the Indians twenty years before. However, Howe was off in New York for most of the war and the majority of guerilla warfare was fought in the Southern Colonies. Advantage 2 - Americans were used to fighting this way. Americans learned how to fight and disappear because the Indians used that tactic during the French and Indian War. The British were used to European Warfare which involved lining up with muskets and artillery across from each other and firing. Obviously guerilla warfare was exceptionally different. Advantage 3 - The Kentucky Long Rifle. Americans had rifles which spin the bullet from the chamber. This gives increased accuracy and range. This allowed specialized snipers such as Daniel Morgan's riflemen the ability to kill from long ranges accurately. The British came up with their answer to Morgan's riflemen but not until the very end of the war. Advantage 4 - The Americans grew up shooting these rifles from birth. They hunted for their food at night.

How did the Battle of Bunker Hill bring the colonists closer to independence?

The June 1775 Battle of Bunker Hill brought the American Colonies at least one step closer to independence in several ways. For one thing, it instilled confidence in the colonists that their forces could stand up to the legendarily stalwart British soldiers. For another thing, it hardened British resolve to refuse any concessions to the tentative rebellion; in turn, this steeled the Colonies to their cause, and the Revolutionary War soon escalated into full-fledged hostilities that resulted (after years of conflict) in a number of significant victories.

Are the Battle of Bunker Hill and the battle of breeds hill the same?

Yes. The fighting was mostly on Breed's Hill, which is lower than Bunker Hill and closer to Boston, and is in between Bunker Hill and Boston. The Patriots were supposed to take a position on top of Bunker Hill but when they got there they realized Breed's Hill was better, so they pushed on to that neighboring hill.Within a few days after the battle patriot printers printed up a "broadside", a single broadsheet description of the battle and sent that off by express riders to spread word of the battle. They incorrectly identified the scene of the fighting as Bunker Hill in this broadside, and the error took root.


Why was the Battle of Bunker Hill called the Battle of Bunker Hill if it took place on breed's hill?

Breed's Hill, or Charleston Hill, is part of the overall structure of Bunker Hill, being the closest part of the peninsula to the Charles River, across which is central Boston. The American commander, Colonel William Prescott, had actually been ordered to build his fortifications on Bunker Hill, and opted for the closer position to the river. In retreating, the colonials crossed Bunker Hill moving up the peninsula to the northwest. (see related map link)
