The other Richard Putney, who was in his mid twenties in 1860, later became a private in the Confederate army. The Colorado Citizen of January 1, 1859, March 12, 1859, and March 17, 1860 all carry notices of the imminent arrival of circuses, all to play in Columbus and one to also play Prairie Point, and that of October 13, 1859 gives notice of a celebrated lecturer, Eloise Bridges.
