Three times the British advanced up the hill, and twice they were beaten back. On the third assault the field was terrible cost.Inspired by Thomas Lea's "The Two Thousand Yard Stare," this take on the American Revolution's Battle of Bunker Hill shows the battle from an unusual perspective- that of a common British soldier. All too often, portrayals of 18th Century warfare portray a highly sanitised version of events, focusing on the glory of the battlefield. But even if the soldiers of this era were wearing colourful uniforms and marching in orderly lines...warfare is a dirty, hellish affair. This piece reflects that reality, and reminds the viewer that it must never be forgotten.Portrayed is a private of the 38th Regiment of Foot, as they partook in the third and final assault on rebel positions on Breeds Hill.
