Not to be missed. Due to Marshall's understated persona, we were pleased to learn of his many accomplishments not normally highlighted. The most impactful hour we spent on the campus.

Marshall is everything that all Americans should strive to be. His story is well told in this museum. The fee was inexpensive and it is on the historic campus of VMI.
