Description (Brief)
Hand colored print; action scene of American and British troop engaged in battle at Bunkers Hill. Below the image on either side of the title are small line-drawn sketches, copied from the print, that identify key figures in the battle scene. The print is based on a composition by John Trumbull.
This print was produced by the Hartford, Connecticut lithographic firm of E.B. & E.C. Kellogg. Edmund Burke Kellogg and Elijah Chapman Kellogg were younger brothers of the founder of the Kellogg lithography firm, Daniel Wright Kellogg. After Daniel Wright Kellogg moved west, his two brothers took over the family lithography firm in 1840 and changed the name to E.B. & E.C. Kellogg. They were responsible for the continued success of the family firm and involved in partnerships with Horace Thayer in 1846-47, John Chenevard Comstock in 1848 and William Henry Bulkeley in 1867.
Dwight Needham of Buffalo was the co-publisher/ distributor or agent for this print.
