Author James Nelson discusses the Battle of Bunker Hill and the beginning of the Revolutionary War: Monday, June 17, 2024, 6pm:

The Topsfield Town Library is excited to host author James L. Nelson (author of With Fire and Sword: The Battle of Bunker Hill and the Beginning of the American Revolution) on Monday, June 17th in the library's Activity Room! June 17, 2024 is the 249th anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, which took place in the Charlestown neighborhood in Boston! The Battle of Lexington and Concord was an ad hoc affair, a battle that materialized out of nowhere. Bunker Hill was something different; the first fight of the American Revolution in which both sides planned and prepared for battle. Author and historian James L. Nelson will discuss the tangle of events and personalities that led to one of the most famous events in the founding of America, a battle that changed expectations on all sides and altered the course of history.
