Description
The purple heart merit was established and created by General George Washington at Newburgh, New York in 1782. The badge was given to soldiers who showed "not only instances of unusual gallantry in battle, but also extraordinary fidelity and essential services in any way." To this day we only have record that it was awarded to three soldiers by George Washington in 1783.

Our purple heart merit is made with 100% wool and embroidered in cotton thread with our pick stitching embroidery technique detail to give it a hand-detailed look, which they would have done at that time. Wear your purple heart proudly and wear it well!

Measures 2" x 2".
