An aerial view looking up the Charles River, with Boston at left and Charlestown at right. Four British warships in the Harbor land troops and fire on Charlestown. A British battery on Copp's Hill in Boston also fires on Charlestown which is on flames. British troops on the shore make an assault on Bunker's [or Breed's] Hill, with American troops above on the heights.

Drawn by George Henry Millar (British, active 1780–90) and engraved by John Lodge (British, active 1774–96)
