This bronze statue was sculpted by renowned local artist Anna Hyatt Huntington. She was 94 when she completed the statue for its 1969 dedication.

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 who were on a raiding party from New York City.
