Few American Casualties

From Diary of the American Revolution, Vol I. Compiled by Frank Moore and published in 1859.

It is wonderful how happily the Americans have been preserved. From Bunker’s Hill fight to the present day, the regulars have fired, on the Cambridge side, about a thousand balls, bombs, and carcases; and, on the Roxbury side, better than two thousand, and have killed, including those who have died of their wounds, on the Cambridge side, seven, and in Roxbury, five.

Yesterday the new Admiral Shuldam, arrived at Boston, with several ships, which occasioned great firing most of the day. 1
