Unknowingly, they were met by troops from Boston who were sent to occupy the hills surrounding the city. Some 1,000 colonial militiamen under Colonel William Prescott built earthen fortifications on top of Breed’s Hill, overlooking Boston and located on the Charlestown Peninsula. The British eventually succeeded in defeating the rebels.
