Monument to John Marshall

Warrenton, Virginia
John Marshall was the fourth chief justice of the United States Supreme Court. Born in Fauquier County, he was an important figure in Virginia, serving as a representative to Congress in 1799-1800 and then becoming Secretary of State under President John Adams.

A local town and a highway (Route 55) bear his name.
