Israel Putnam

The town of Putnam is rich in history, getting its name from Israel Putnam (January 7, 1718 - May 29, 1790) who was an American Army general and Freemason, popularly known as "Old Put." Putnam's famous quote "don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes, then shoot low" is still well known today.
