Billerica Things to Do: 1 reviews and 5 photos
ASA POLLARD was the first American to be killed in the Battle of Bunker Hill. He walked outside the colonial fort, some say to look for water, others say to dare the British warships to shoot. A cannon was fired from a ship, the cannonball reportedly hit the ground near Asa, bounced into the air and decapitated him.
The spot where Asa lived is now marked with a plaque in town.
Directions: So sorry, it is a privately owned home now and certainly of modern style, not what Asa lived in. But if you happen to drive by it you could see the marker by the road.
