Brooklyn in Windham County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
Israel Putnam Monument
to the memory of
Israel Putnam, Esq.
Senior Major General in the Armies
of the United States of America,
who was born at Salem,
in the Province of Massachusetts,
on the 7th day of January,
And died on the 29th of May,
if thou art a soldier,
drop a tear over the dust of a Hero,
who ever attentive
to the lives and happiness of his men
dared to lead
where any dared to follow.
If a Patriot,
remember the distinguished
rendered thy country
by the Patriot who sleeps
beneath this marble;
if thou art honest, generous and worthy,
render a cheerful tribute of respect
to a man
whose generosity was singular,
whose honesty was proverbial;
who raised himself to universal esteem and offices of
by personal worth and a useful life.
