National Historic Landmark Nomination Form, 1996. “General George Catlett Marshall, Jr. (1880-1959), who enjoyed eighteen years here from 1941 until his death in 1959, called his house in Leesburg, Virginia, Dodona Manor, after the Greek oracle of the whispering oak leaves on the Hill of Dodona. During these years, Marshall rose from being an Army officer held in professional respect, but without celebrity, to one of the most important and respected world figures of the twentieth century. Winston Churchill, recalling the years of World War II, said that the only individual on whom all the leaders conferred unqualified praise and admiration was General Marshall.” (Submitted on November 12, 2017, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
