Summary
Recording of the dedication of the third arch in the Virginia Military Institute cadet barracks. The arch was dedicated to George C. Marshall, graduate of VMI, Army Chief of Staff during World War II, and Secretary of State in the Truman administration. Includes music from the Cadet Glee Club and speeches from Bernard M. Baruch (1870-1965) and George C. Marshall. Baruch speaks about VMI's history and the participation of its cadets in the Battle of New Market during the Civil War. He also speaks about the previous two arches, dedicated to George Washington and Stonewall Jackson, and Marshall's role in World War II and as Secretary of State. He recounts General Pershing's recommendation to FDR for Marshall's appointment as Chief of Staff, and discusses Marshall's philosophy of military preparedness. Marshall speaks about the VMI graduates who participated in the Philippine Insurrection and World War I, and asserts that the development of character at VMI resulted in positions of responsibility for VMI graudates. He also recounts the dedication of the monument honoring the VMI cadets who participated in the Battle of New Market
