Marshall Wellington Learned, a young farmer, was the eldest son of seven siblings.

His father was severely crippled and upon the death of his mother at the age of ten Marshall set out to labor on his neighbor's farms to support his family.

As soon as he apparently could Marshall Learned enlisted at Burlington 28 December 1863 by local selectmen for an enlistment period of three years. He gave his age as 21 years old though he was in fact 18. He was 5' 10" tall with blue eyes and brown hair. Marshall was mustered into Federal service at Brattleboro two days later 30 December 1863 by Major Austin. He was assigned to Capt. Thomas Kavaney's A Company 14 February 1864 at Brandy Station, Virginia as a recruit and participated in battles fought at The Wilderness and Spotsylvania where he was wounded slightly. He took part in the battles at the Bloody Angle, Anderson's Farm, and Jericho Ford. Marshall was seriously wounded 3 June 1864 at Cold Harbor by a musket ball that entered his shoulder and exited his lower back. He was transferred from a medical facility in Washington to the Army hospital at Brattleboro, Vermont, 15 June 1864 where he died from dysentery, very likely a pre-existing condition, 23 August 1864.
