Back of monument:
J. D. Putnam, Co. F., 14th Wisconsin Vol. Inf., was killed here April 7, 1862, while regiment was advancing in line of battle against a Confederate battery. His comrades buried him where he fell and cut his name in an oak tree which stood here. In 1901, Thomas Steele recognized the burial place, the name he helped cut in 1862 still being legible on this stump. This enabled the Wisconsin Commission to fix line of regiment's advance, its last tablet, and place for state monument.
