Why were they fighting over bunker hill?
On June 17, 1775 British regulars faced an assemblage of independently minded colonial militia at the Battle of Bunker Hill. By evening of that day the British held the Charlestown peninsula, and a new respect for the determination and resourcefulness of colonial forces. The colonials, if shaken from what was for many the first taste of war (and what it reveals of men's character), had proven to themselves that in direct confrontation they could thwart the British army, a force superior in training, equipment, and organization.

Yes they did with more than 800 British wounded and 226 killed, which was almost a third of the British forces there. The British took Bunker Hill after the colonials ran out …of ammo. It was a victory for the British but it came at a high price.
The Patriots lost the battle of Bunker hill because they were way outnumbered. But they stood up to them and fought.

There were just too many Brits. After three tries, the British took over. Each side lost almost half of their men.
