Marshall House Entry on the Historical Marker Database
I wanted to let readers know that I submitted the Marshall House historical marker for publication on the Historical Marker Database, a great on-line resource which contains information on thousands of markers across the United States. Readers may remember that the Marshall House in Alexandria, Virginia is the site of the death of Union Col. Elmer Ellsworth, who became a martyr to the Northern cause early in the Civil War. (See my previous post here.) The marker was accepted by the Historical Marker Database and can be found here. While you are on the site, do a search and check out markers that may be of interest to you. And when going on vacation, be sure to look up what historical sites may be available to visit.
