It is with great sadness that I share the passing of long-time Allison-Antrim Museum board member, Dr. James "Jim" Craig Jr, who passed away yesterday morning. Jim was a charter member of Allison-Antrim Museum, Inc. and then came on the board January 1, 2000, over 17 1/2 years ago. He served as Vice President for many, many years; spoke at a monthly meeting about the history of the McLaughlin Hotel (his mother's father built the hotel); loaned a number of his collections for special exhibits, such as his GA baseball collection in the photograph & his antique car; and participated in several of the Old Home Week Reminiscing sessions. He was also a beloved dentist to several generations of children in the community. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, my friend.

American History - 235 years ago ~ August 7, 1782, George Washington designed what is known today as the Purple Heart. It was originally known as the Badge of Military Merit. ~ The first image is of the original Badge of Military Merit. ~ Washington's purpose for the badge was that it be given "for any singularly meritorious action." ~ Only three Revolutionary soldiers were given the Badge of Merit by George Washington - Sgt Elijah Churchill, 2nd Reg, Light Dragoons; Sgt William Brown, 5th Connecticut Reg; Sgt Daniel Bissell, 2nd Connecticut Reg ~ A privilege of having been awarded the Badge of Military Merit allowed the recipients to pass through any Revolutionary War checkpoints without being questioned. ~ No further badges were given until after WWI. On January 7, 1931, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Douglass MacArthur revived the process begun in 1927 to reinstate the giving of the medal. It was redesigned (the familiar image we recognize today) and was renamed The Purple Heart. The Purple Heart medal became official on February 22, 1932, the 200th anniversary of George Washington's birth. ~ UNLIKE THE Revolutionary War, today's Purple Heart is only given to those servicewomen and men who have been killed in action, wounded in action, or to POWs who suffered mistreatment. ~ Recipients: WWI - 32,518 WWII - 1,076,245 Korean War - 118,650 Vietnam War - 351,794 Persian Gulf - 607 Afghanistan War - 7,027 Iraq War - 35,321 ~ Be sure to stop by AA Museum to see the WWI exhibit. Allison-Antrim Museum is regularly open Tuesday-Friday, noon to 4 pm & Saturday, 11 am to 1 pm.
