This Day in History: June 17th, 1775 The Battle of Bunker Hill, the bloodiest battle of the American Revolution took place.
One hundred Colonials were killed and 3oo were wounded. It has been 242 years since this battle and every one that participated are long gone. But we still have a witness. Sergeant Francis Merrifield (1735-1814) carried his pocket size King James Bible into battle that day and his Bible still survives. You can see his Bible below and read more about him and his Bible at the following link:
