ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO. The Battle of Banker Hill---The Continental Army---Preliminary Contests---Fortification of the Hill---The
One hundred years ago the very hour
these lines reach the eye of the render,
were eventful moments to the anxious
citizen of the then unborn Republic.
Rapidly following the affairs ot Isling
ton and Concord on the 19th of April,
the Continentals had taken meamres of
defense, and the "Continental Army"
had, by the opening of the month of
Jane assumed, what to the inexperienc
ed Colonists appeared to be a formidable
equipment. Actually, the force of men
under arms amounted to small Division,
as for instance, an army was organized
during the war of the Rebellion. Yet it
was an "army," and boasted of "wings,"
and a "centre." Exactly, the "army"
on the 9th of June, 1776, numbered
total of 7,644, commanded as follows:
The operations had drawn all the troops
centering in and around Boston. The
Right "wing" rested at Roxbury and
Jamaica Tlain, under command of Gen.
John Thomas; the '-left" at Medford,
Charlestown and Chelsea, tinder Gen.
Israel Putnam; and the "center" at Old
Cambridge, under Gen. Artemns Ward.
This was the situation jof the militia
troops at the beginning of the second
week of that June which saw the war of
the Revolution fairly begun. Theovents
of this and the next two weeks run over
the minor actions and skirmishes inci
dent to the situation of the "Army" andj
the closing m of the British "Expedi
tions were organized," to "keep up the
enthusiasm of the men." Going back a
few days, on the 27th of May, the "En
gagement" of Noddle's Island took place.
and the affair of Chelsea Neck, and the
first important naval capture that of the
schooner which fired on the Provincials,
and which some of Putnam's men cap
tured from the Neck with her arma
ment of "four six-pounders, 12 swivels,
and some small arms." Here, also, the
usual contradiction ha to losses is shown,
Gen. Gage reporting the British loss at
"two men killed," and "a few wounded;"
while the New Hampshire Gazette, of
June 2, 1775, records the loss thus,
'Tia said between 200 and 300 a safe
way of putting it Marines and Regulars
were killed and wounded, and that a
placs was dug in Boston 25 feet square
iu uurjr uieir ueaa.
Of these events prior to the engage
ment of the 17th, these lines from Trum
bull, in McFingal:
"Nay, stern with rage grim Putnam boldine,
Plundered both Kokii and Noddle Island.
11 .. . I . IT J . . '
Scared troops of Toriee into town.
1 their hay and houses down,
"And menaced Gage unless he'd flee
To drive him headlong to the sea; - 1
As once, to faithless Jews a sign,
The De'el tamed hog reeve, did the swine."
It has been asserted that the records
of the wars do not offer such thrilling
experiences and of in tenser interest,
Tiewed in the light of subsequent events
than those of the 24 hours beginning at 6
o clock of June 16, 1775.. The commit
tee of Safety of Cambridge had decided
that the safety of the Provincials de
manded the defense of Charlestown
Neck, of which, Bunker Hill, was plain
ly the key. At the hour named, 900 de.
vout men assembled on the Common at
Cambridge, armed with intrenching
tools. They were led in prayer to the
God of battles by President Langdon, of
Harvard College. At 9 o'clock the col
umn moved away from town toward the
Neck, led by two sergeants with dark
lanterns. Some wore militia coats, and
some Sunday suits of homespun cloth
yet it was all one in the double darkness
and at twelve o'clock the column had
reached and begun work on the Hill,
and at break of day the marine 'sentries
of the ships in the river discovered the
hill fortified and gave the alarm.
THE FIRST ASSAULT AT BUNKER HILL.
From a very graphic and timely pa
per by H. E. Scudder, in the July At-
lantae, we take the following
It is now S o'clock, and the hour had
struck. General Howe'a reinforoements
had arrived, and he had about 8,000
men drawn up in a line. He was be
fore them and said:
"Gentlemen I am very happy in hav
the honor of commanding so fine a
body of men. I do not in the least
doubt but that you all will behave like
Englishmen, and as becometh good sol
diers. If the enemy will not come from
their entrenchments, we must drive them
at all events, otherwise the town of
Boston will be set on fire by them.
shall cot desire you to go a step farther
where I go myself at your head.
Remember, gentlemen, we have no re
source to any resources if we lose Bos
ton, but to go on board our ships, which
be very disagreeable to us all."
There was now a general discharge
Howe's -field pieces, from the
Copp's Hill batteries, and those on the
ships, while the British columns moved
forward in two divisions the right com
manded by General Howe, who propos
ed to move along the Mystic, in order to
penetrate the American line stationed at
rail fence, and cut off retreat from
redoubt; the left under General
Figot, to storm the breastwork and re
doubt. In the redoubt stood Colonel
rrescott, awaiting the attack; behind
rail fence was General Putnam. Both
these oommanders knew how scanty
the supply of ammunition, and how
needful it was that their men should meet
attack with the courage of veterans.

Pigot ordered a retreat, and a shout of
triumph burst forth from the redoubt.
It was answered from the mil fence.
The enemy's artillery, stuck fust in the
clay pits and furnished with balls too
large for the pieces, hod been left behind
and the troops had advanced, tiring with
precision, and doing no damage to the
Americans, but only to the brunches of
trees above them. As they camo within
the prescribed distance, tho word was
given, aud quickly the marksmen behind
the fence began taking deadly aim and
thinning the ranks with thoir cool, de

"There! see that officer! Let ns luive a

THK LAST ATTACK OF THE BRITISH AT BUK-
General Clinton, who saw the discom
fiture of the British forces from Copp's
Hill, crossed the river and took com
mand of some five or six hundred men
who stood hesitating, without orders, on

Howe now left his place at the head of
the left column and massed his men on
the right, making at the same time a
demonetratioe at the rail fence, chiefly
cover the movement of the artillery,
which was placed so as to take advantage
the gap between the breastwork and
fence, where it could rake the interior
the redoubt. The extreme left was
led as before by General Pigot and by
General Cliuton, while Howe led the
oenter. The men were ordered to re
serve their fire, to advance iu column
with bayonets fixed, and to carry the re
doubt in front.
Prescott took In the situation at once.
When he saw the artillery in position,
knew that a straight, unobstructed
line led from the mouth of the guns to
the interior of the redoubt; when he
saw the solid column advancing without
firing, up to the lull, right in face, ho
knew that the storming of tho redoubt
was to follow. Tet the same resolution
and steady nerve held him and his men
before. Again they waited; again
the heroic, grimy line of men rose be
hind the parapet, and swept the enemy's
ranks with their concentrated Are. The
advancing foroes staggered; they were
pushed forward by those behind, by the
swords of the offioers, and goaded by
the fury of discomfited men. The ar
tillery was plowing np the earth in the
redoubt, stones were falling from within
upon the desperate British, sure sign
that the ammunition was gone, and with
shouts they began to scale the face of
redoubt. Brave niou within and
brave men without, maddened by the
oonfiiot, which had been raging for more
thnn an hour, were now eugaged in a
hand to hand fight. The Americans
clubbed their muskets, struck down the
men that climbed the parapet, and fought
every inch of ground; but the re
doubt was now filled with red coats and
farmer soldiers, the dust was filline-
air, the soldiers without were swarm-
the works, and Prescott, iron and
steel to the last, gave the wurd to re
treat. Scarcely oould way bo found to
