   Charles Marshall was appointed to Lee's staff as an aide-de-camp. In this capacity, as a major, he served during 1862 and 1863. Later, as a lieutenant colonel, he was an assistant adjutant general (1864). He accompanied General Lee to the surrender meeting at Wilmer McLean's house in April of 1865.

   I believe that he was the grand nephew of Chief Justice John Marshall, but I haven't gotten into his genealogy.

   Here is a picture of his tombstone in Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore:
