Purple Heart Badge of Military Merit

Purple Heart Badge of Military Merit

Price: $4.00

General George Washington established the Badge of Military Merit. He directed that it be "the figure of a heart in purple cloth, or silk, edge with narrow lace or binding." Although Washington intended this forerunner of today's Purple Heart to be bestowed "whenever any singular meritorious action is performed," only three soldiers of the American Revolution were awarded this medal. This replica makes an excellent addition to any patch collection.
