Civil War officer. Col. James K. Marshall assumed command of Brig. Gen. James J. Pettigrew's Brigade when the latter took command of Heth's Division on July 3, 1863 at Gettysburg. Marshall led the brigade into Pickett's Charge and fell dead within 50 yards of the Uion lines near the Bryan Barn on Cemetery Ridge.
Col. Marshall's remains probably lie in the Gettysburg Dead Section at Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Va. His family's plot is located here and a bronze plaque is on the front wall of the church that bears his name. There is no proper cenotaph in the family plot behind the church.
