“The Purple Heart”

The Purple Heart is one of the best-known military decorations. Established shortly after World War I, the medal is awarded to those who are wounded or killed in action against an enemy while serving in the United States military. In this interactive class, we’ll learn all about the history of the Purple Heart and hear stories from the Soldiers & Sailors collection about individual recipients. We’ll also play a game of “Fact or fiction?” that will test your knowledge of this award.
