Israel Putnam (1718-1790) was an American Revolutionary War general who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Written in 1865, this work was one a series of biographies designed "more particularly for the young." The series aimed to "furnish from the pages of the world's history a few examples of true manhood, lofty purpose, and persevering effort, such as may be safely held up either for the admiration or emulation of the youth of the present day." The biography, which covers Putnam's life from his early days to his death, is presented in facsimile form with no ancillary materials.
