Private James F. Putnam of the Eighth Independent Battery Ohio Light Artillery participated in the Battle of Shiloh on April 6-7, 1862. During the days following, the Greenville, Ohio, resident wrote a pair of letters home to his mother. Both were printed in his hometown newspaper, the Darke County Democrat, on April 23 and May 7, 1862.
