Why were Breed's Hill and Bunker Hill important positions for the Americans to hold?

The hills provided excellent retreat positions because they protected the Americans from rifle and cannon fire.

The hills overlooked Boston, and armies could fire on British ships in the harbor.

The hills provided a safe place for the Americans to gather to plan rebellion.

The hills blocked American access to Boston, making it difficult to regain control of Boston.

    The hills provided a safe place for the Americans to gather to plan rebellion.

    Explanation:

    The most important thing about the mantaining the control of the hills is the fact that you can see and oberve everything around and hold positions, they didn't have the opportunity nor the arms to attack the british troops in the harbor, but at that time it provided a great and safe place for the Americans to gather to plan rebellion.
