Dr. Marshall was commissioned a surgeon in the Union army and assigned to the 3rd Delaware Volunteer Infantry.

He was captured during the siege of Front Royal in 1862 and made a daring escape on horseback. Closely pursued and shot at, Marshall was left for dead in a ditch.

He made his way back to Union lines, but his injuries caused so much suffering that President Lincoln personally ordered him to take a leave of absence.

Home with family and friends he recovered, and when the 6th Delaware Infantry was formed, Marshall was commissioned senior surgeon.
