Who won the Battle of Breeds Hill?

Are you sure you do not mean The Battle of Bunker Hill? If you do mean Bunker Hill, the answer is the British. They lost many soldiers to the Continental Army. The Continental Army had to retreat because they ran out of ammunition. It was here, that the famous saying, " Don't shoot 'till you see the whites of their eyes," was uttered. (it was spoken by a Continental) In the end, the British lost a greater amount of soldiers and the colonists were better off than the British. This showed the British, and the colonists, that Britain can be defeated. Thank you and I wish I was of service to you. :)
