- Letter from J. Waller to unidentified recipient, 21 June 1775
Lieutenant Waller is the Adjutant of the 1st Battalion of Marines (later called the Royal Marines), which has already seen bloodshed on 19 April 1775. The Marines, under the command of Major Pitcairn, were part of the expeditionary force that marched to Lexington and Concord. Now, a little over two months later, Lt. Waller gives a detailed account of the Battle of Bunker Hill, an action "very fatal to the 1st Battalion."
