Marion Washington Page enlisted in the Confederate Army on March 26, 1862. He served in the Fifth Florida Regiment, Company D under Captain A. J. Lea. In the battle of Antietam (September 17, 1862), Page was wounded in the right knee by a gunshot, necessitating the amputation of his leg above the knee. He was discharged on March 13, 1863.
According to the 1870 Federal Census, Marion W. Page was a blacksmith. In 1880, he was listed as a farmer, and by 1900, when he was 60 years old, he was a part-time "market peddler" (perhaps selling produce from his farm?).
Page applied for a Confederate veteran pension from the state of Florida March 3, 1902, citing his Civil War wound as the reason for his inability to earn a living.
