1853 Israel Putnam American Revolutionary War General David Humphreys Illustrated



Life and Heroic Exploits of Israel Putnam is David Humphreys celebrated and lasting biography of Revolutionary War General Israel Putnam. A useful source of firsthand anecdotes regarding Putnams wartime exploits. According to the DAB, Humphreys

“had a natural talent for military science, and there are few more intelligent contemporary pictures of certain important campaigns, notably the battle of Long Island and the retreat from Harlem, than those contained in his [essay on the life of Putnam]. In this he wrote as he fought, coolly and vigorously, and the book remains a testimonial to Putnam, to the effort and sacrifice of those stirring days, and to Humphreys own victorious good sense”.
