WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2007 – When Gen. George Washington created the Purple Heart Medal in 1872, he probably never envisioned it would be so huge. Literally.

Artist Roger Baker mowed a 1,000-foot long rendition of the medal, covering 850,000 square feet, into a field at Thomas Bull Memorial Park in Hamtonburgh, N.Y., near the town where the first awards were presented to Revolutionary War soldiers. Baker said his creation is a “gift of art” to the American public.

The art work was unveiled Aug. 5, two days before the medal’s 75th anniversary. The park is in the same county as The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, near where the medal was initially established."
