Celebrate the spirit of giving with this colorized 2013 Kennedy half dollar. Few people have heard the story of Richard Kirkland – yet those who were touched by his kindness never forgot. Following a Union attack during the 1862 Battle of Fredericksburg, 19-year-old Confederate soldier Kirkland was the only one who ventured out onto the battlefield to deliver water and comfort to the injured – mostly Union soldiers.
Dubbed the “Angel of Marye’s Heights,” Kirkland became an important part of Civil War history. Now, your favorite collector can own this handsome Kennedy half dollar, colorized by Littleton’s artists and presented in a display case with an informative story card. Makes a touching gift.
