This is 2 of 7 posts of photographs that I took during a recent trip to Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding, CT. (Note: the painting was at the museum.)

3. "PUTNAM’S ESCAPE AT HORSENECK" – BRONZE STATUE – is on the front lawn of the Visitor Center. It was sculpted by renowned local artist Anna Hyatt Huntington at her estate just a few miles from the park. Ms. Huntington was 94 when she completed the statue for its 1969 dedication at the park. The bronze depicts General Israel Putnam’s legendary ride down the stone steps in Greenwich, then called "Horseneck", where he narrowly escaped from the British dragoons.
