1. George Catlett Marshall Marker
Inscription.  The Commander of the U.S. Army in World War II, the author of the plan for European economic recovery after the war, and the winner of the 1953 Nobel Prize for peace was born on Main Street across from this site on December 31, 1880. The youngest son of Laura and George C. Marshall Sr. struggled in some school subjects. However, he excelled in one, history. "It is clear he got a thorough grounding in the American tradition" in Uniontown. Marshall himself recalled, "I ... stuck my nose into everything."

(Photo Caption): Young George Marshall stands, hat in hand, in front of the family residence. George's father was in the flourishing coal and coke business. Mrs. Marshall was a caring and loving mother and George's "confidant" in many of his boyhood antics.
 
Erected 2003 by His Royal Highness The Duke of York, KCVO, ADC; Friends of Marshall.
