. In his official report Gage calls the total number of British troops engaged as “something
above 2000 men” (Gage to Lord Dartmouth, 25 June, in Frothingham, Siege of Boston
, p. 387). Gage lists the killed and wounded by name and rank, showing totals of 228
killed and 828 wounded. The officers lost were 21 killed and 70 wounded. Lt. Col.
Abercrombie was the highest ranking officer who suffered fatal wounds. Maj. Pitcairn,
who commanded at Lexington, and Maj. Williams also died (same, p. 387–389). The general
that Warren mentions may have been Burgoyne, who was not seen after the battle and
was believed by many to be dead.
