Grand Historian Walter H. Hunt Commemorates The Battle Of Bunker Hill June 17, 1775

Battle of Bunker HillOn June 17, 1775 some 2000+ British troops commanded by General Thomas Gage stormed Breed’s Hill where the rebels were encamped.

Among subsequent charges up the hill that day Dr. Joseph Warren, Grand Master of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Massachusetts and a Major General was slain.  This was a great loss for the Grand Lodge, for Massachusetts and for the Patriots who sought separation from British rule.

Today, Tuesday, June 17, 2014 a commemorative gathering took place at the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown, Massachusetts and the keynote speaker was RW Walter H. Hunt, Grand Historian of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts AF & AM.

You might remember an article on the Beehive not too long ago about Brother Hunt:
