- Front of a playing card about the American Revolutionary War. Bunker Hill - Gen. Israel Putnam
This is a playing card of a card game about the Revolutionary War. There are two questions with their answers: "What celebrated battle was fought near Boston at the beginning of the Revolutionary War? Bunker Hill." and "What American officer of the Revolution left his plow in the field and hastened to join the Patriot army at Boston on hearing the news of the bloodshed at Lexington? General Israel Putnam." A British Red Ensign, a British naval flag also known as the Meteor Flag and Colonial Red Ensign and one of the first flags to be flown in the colonies, appears above the questions and answers. The back of the playing card is decorated with stars emitting rays of light, clouds, and the Old Man in the Moon.
