Because, taking a hill is very hard to do from the bottom up. It is funny how the patriots held it for two out of three days with a severe shortage of ammunition, and being outnumbered by a lot. This battle is a great way to show how wonderful the high ground is to have in any battle.

The attack on bunker hill was a mistake because they were at a clear disadvantage. An enemy who has the top of a hill is not easily taken.
