Page, an English military engineer who served as aide de campe to General Howe during the action, prepared this detailed plan of the Battle of Bunker Hill. It is the best known and most commonly reproduced plan of the battle.

Originally published shortly after the battle, this copy appeared in 1793, accompanying Stedman's History of the American War. It depicts redoubts, fences, and hedgerows in great detail, as well as the lines of march of attacking forces, British ships, and the Corps Hill battery with lines of fire.
