GEORGE WASHINGTON AND THE BADGE for MILITARY MERIT: ORDER OF THE PURPLE HEART

with Washington's Liberation of Boston Visible in Background of Painting Commissioned by John Hancock


Historical Background to this Year's Commemorative Ornament and Display: The siege of Boston began on April 19, 1775, continued until March 17, 1776, and was the opening phase of the American Revolutionary War. In March 1776, General George Washington liberated Boston — shown in the background of the portrait, on-center, and a key theme of the 2016 ornament confluent with Washington's General Order of the Badge of Military Merit now known as the Order of the Purple Heart.


Design


The design of this year’s ornament features a motif from a White House mirror, an image of the painting of Washington commissioned by John Hancock then president of the Continental Congress. The painting depicts Washington’s liberation of Boston in 1776 (visible in the background).

On August 7,1782, Newburgh, New York, General George Washington, Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, in his general orders announced the "Badge for Military Merit" comprised of a heart-shaped decoration of purple silk, edged with silver binding and stitched with the word Merit in silver upon its face. Washington's "Purple Heart" was awarded to only three soldiers for "singularly meritorious action." Moreover, the wearer of the badge was permitted to pass guards and sentinels "without challenge." Following the Revolutionary War, Washington's purple heart was largely forgotten and its official registry, "The Book of Merit" was lost.

In 1927, General Summerall, Army Chief of Staff, submitted an unsuccessful draft bill to Congress to revive the Merit Badge. General Douglas MacArthur, however, took the cause to reinstate the medal for the bicentennial of George Washington's 200th birthday with success: On February 22, 1932, the U.S. War Department created the "Order of the Purple Heart" with new features including a bust of Washington and his coat of arms.

The Order of the Purple Heart with its unique provenance is the oldest decoration for military merit and is awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces who have been killed, wounded in action against an enemy, or who have suffered maltreatment as prisoners of war.

An Ornament with Included Ribbon and Also a Year-Round Commemorative with Included Complimentary Display


Historical Background to this Year's Commemorative Ornament and Display: The siege of Boston began on April 19, 1775, continued until March 17, 1776, and was the opening phase of the American Revolutionary War.

Design


The design of this year’s deeply symbolic American ornament features a motif from a White House mirror, an image of the painting of Washington commissioned by John Hancock then president of the Continental Congress. The painting depicts Washington’s liberation of Boston in 1776 (visible in the background). On the perimeter are the seals of the five active branches of military service, Washington's "Badge of Military Merit" now known as the Order of the Purple Heart, and an elegant border based on a mirror within the White House. Thus, the 2016 White House annual display and ornament represents Washington as General of the Continental Army, the origin of the Order of the Purple Heart in the Washington's creation of the Badge of Military Merit, Washington's liberation of Boston during the Revolutionary War in America's fight for independence, and the historical relationship of all five branches of military service to Washington. Bringing all these seemingly disparate symbols, themes, and moments in history into one commemorative design posed significant design challenges. We hope you will enjoy for many years to come this unique and one of a kind, limited edition, official ornament of the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 now in its 70th anniversary year and created in its earliest form by permanent presidential memorandum.

2016 White House Ornament: GEORGE WASHINGTON

Design by Anthony Giannini, USAFR

WASHINGTON'S LIBERATION OF BOSTON ON MARCH 17, 1776 and

WASHINGTON'S ORDER OF THE PURPLE HEART

EXCERPT OF WASHINGTON'S ORDER OF THE BADGE OF MERIT GOLD ENGRAVED ON REVERSE OF ORNAMENT

Signed, Numbered 8" x 10" Parchment Presentation Certificate of Appreciation, Authenticity, and Sequence Number

Washington's Liberation of Boston is Visible in Background of the Painting Commissioned by John Hancock


Historical Background to this Year's Commemorative Ornament and Display: The siege of Boston began on April 19, 1775, continued until March 17, 1776, and was the opening phase of the American Revolutionary War. In March 1776, General George Washington liberated Boston — shown in the background of the portrait, on-center, and a key theme of the 2016 ornament confluent with Washington's General Order of the Badge of Military Merit now known as the Order of the Purple Heart.










Design


The design by Giannini of this year’s deeply symbolic American ornament features a motif from a White House mirror, an image of the painting of Washington commissioned by John Hancock then president of the Continental Congress. The painting depicts Washington’s liberation of Boston in 1776 (visible in the background). On the perimeter are the seals of the five active branches of military service, Washington's "Badge of Military Merit" now known as the Order of the Purple Heart, and an elegant border based on a mirror within the White House. Thus, the 2016 White House annual display and ornament represents Washington as General of the Continental Army, the origin of the Order of the Purple Heart in the Washington's creation of the Badge of Military Merit, Washington's liberation of Boston during the Revolutionary War in America's fight for independence, and the historical relationship of all five branches of military service to Washington. Bringing all these seemingly disparate symbols, themes, and moments in history into one commemorative design posed significant design challenges. We hope you will enjoy for many years to come this unique and one of a kind, limited edition, official ornament of the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 now in its 70th anniversary year and created in its earliest form by permanent presidential memorandum.

On August 7,1782, Newburgh, New York, General George Washington, Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, in his general orders announced the "Badge for Military Merit" comprised of a heart-shaped decoration of purple silk, edged with silver binding and stitched with the word Merit in silver upon its face. Washington's "Purple Heart" was awarded to only three soldiers for "singularly meritorious action." Moreover, the wearer of the badge was permitted to pass guards and sentinels "without challenge." Following the Revolutionary War, Washington's purple heart was largely forgotten and its official registry, "The Book of Merit" was lost.

In 1927, General Summerall, Army Chief of Staff, submitted an unsuccessful draft bill to Congress to revive the Merit Badge. General Douglas MacArthur, however, took the cause to reinstate the medal for the bicentennial of George Washington's 200th birthday with success: On February 22, 1932, the U.S. War Department created the "Order of the Purple Heart" with new features including a bust of Washington and his coat of arms.

The Order of the Purple Heart with its unique provenance is the oldest decoration for military merit and is awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces who have been killed, wounded in action against an enemy, or who have suffered maltreatment as prisoners of war.

On August 7,1782, Newburgh, New York, General George Washington, Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, in his general orders announced the "Badge for Military Merit" comprised of a heart-shaped decoration of purple silk, edged with silver binding and stitched with the word Merit in silver upon its face. Washington's "Purple Heart" was awarded to only three soldiers for "singularly meritorious action." Moreover, the wearer of the badge was permitted to pass guards and sentinels "without challenge." Following the Revolutionary War, Washington's purple heart was largely forgotten and its official registry, "The Book of Merit" was lost. In 1927, General Summerall, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, submitted an unsuccessful draft bill to Congress to revive the Merit Badge. General Douglas MacArthur, however, took the cause to reinstate the medal for the bicentennial of George Washington's 200th birthday with success: On February 22, 1932, the U.S. War Department created the "Order of the Purple Heart" with new features including a bust of Washington and his coat of arms. The "Order of the Purple Heart" with its unique provenance is the oldest decoration for military merit and is awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces who have been killed, wounded in action against an enemy, or who have suffered maltreatment as prisoners of war.
