Artistic rendition of General Israel Putman (January 7, 1718 - May 29, 1790), an army general who fought with distinction at the Battle of Bunker Hill (1775) during the American Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783). Although Putnam never quite attained the national renown of famous heroes like Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone plus more , in his own time his reckless courage and fighting spirit were known far beyond Connecticut's borders through the circulation of folk legends celebrating his exploits. He is often accredited as saying "Don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes" during the battle of Bunker Hill.
