Torn by war: Greenwich in the American Revolution

The nine-by-twenty-two foot oil on canvass depression-era work of artist James Henry Daugherty titled "The Life and Times of General Israel Putnam of Connecticut," hangs on the wall in Greenwich Library, Conn., Firday, Jan. 23, 2015. The mural depicts the heroic exploits of General Putnam, including his escape from the British down "Put's Hill" during the American Revolutionary War as well as Putnam leading his troops during the Battle of Bunker Hill that is seen here in the center panel.
