This museum provides a great insight into an American citizen soldier often not recognized by the main stream. Marshal's legacy is well documented in the museum and is well worth spending the time and effort to learn about this warrior and statesman.

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.
