Israel Putnam

Today is the birthday of General Israel Putnam, one of the important figures of the early part of the Revolutionary War and one of the commanders of colonial forces at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Counties, towns and other places have been named for Putnam since his service. In honor of his birthday as well as the brave colonials he commanded, today we raise the Bunker Hill flag.
