The George C. Marshall Papers

FOLLOWING his examination, Marshall returned to his new job in Danville, Virginia. Since September 16 he had held the rank of major and the position of commandant of cadets at the Danville Military Institute, a hedge against the uncertainty of gaining a commission. At the Institute he taught the approximately ninety boys in the elementary and secondary levels arithmetic, algebra, history, and English, in addition to drill and discipline.
