George C. Marshall International Center

George C. Marshall International Center The mission of the George C. Marshall International Center is to bring to life the legacy and relevance of General George C. Marshall, an American visionary who changed the world, by increasing public understanding of his character and contributions.
(13)

The George C. Marshall International Center was founded to preserve the Marshall House, the beloved home of George and Katherine Marshall, and to further the legacy of General Marshall who is considered by many to be one of the greatest modern-day American heroes. Today, GCMIC’s mission is to preserve and advance Marshall’s legacy of peace and international cooperation as best exemplified by the Marshall Plan for which General Marshall won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. These objectives are advanced through education programs, international exchanges, community events, and the interpretation of Marshall’s home and gardens. Education is the cornerstone of our programming. GCMIC's Immersion Workshop for teachers and Student Partnership Exchange Program are designed to strengthen the relationships between Europe and the United States, on a grass roots level, by providing unique experiences for the exchange of ideas among participants from the United States and the Marshall Plan countries. As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, the George C. Marshall International Center GCMIC relies on a combination of memberships, corporate sponsorships, private donations and grants to fund its mission. Proceeds from contributions, programs and events support our education programs, and help us preserve the Marshalls' 200-year-old home, Dodona Manor.

IndED Academies

Thanks for joining us IndED Academies.

We had the honor of celebrating Veterans Day at the George C. Marshall International Center. An inspiring address from Adm. T. Joseph Lopez, and honorably emceed by Major Dennis Boykin.

It’s important to remember, as the Admiral alluded to, that Veterans Day was conceived as a simultaneous celebration of victory and of peace, as it was originally Armistice Day celebrating the end of World War I.

From all of us at IndED, we offer a special thanks to those who have served in helping preserve our liberty.

In November 1945, George C. Marshall was sent to China to settle the #Chinese Civil War between the Nationalists and #Communists. By January 1947, the Marshalls returned with many wonderful Chinese works of art.

These detailed works of #artistry are symbols of ancient workmanship but also of contentious Sino-American political relations. Help us continue to preserve these works by donating or becoming a member at www.georgecmarshall.org

This week in 1936, George Marshall becomes a one star general and head of 35 Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Oregon and Washington.

The CCC was created as part of #FDR’s New Deal programs to put young men back to work. The Corps built roads through national parks, electrified rural areas, and more! General Marshall’s experience here prepared him to lead citizen soldiers during #WWII.

Did you know General Marshall is nicknamed the "Father of the Jeep?" Marshall owned his own Jeep, seen below, after purchasing the two-door Willys-Overland model in 1948.

Since 1940, The Jeep has become a staple of WWII
soldier transportation, and later of off-roading tradition. Some take this tradition even further by participating in a Jeep Jamboree!

On October 1, 1949, President Harry Truman announced the appointment of whom he called “the greatest living American” to the presidency of the American Red Cross. The man, a five star general and former secretary of state, would go on to transform the humanitarian organization into the formidable monument of aid it is known for today. The man, is George C. Marshall.

As a military commander, Marshall had sought public support for Red Cross drives, and war’s-end reports praised the organization’s service to the men of the armed forces. Marshall’s appeals for the European Recovery Program were of the exact kind needed by the Red Cross when Basil O’Connor stepped down. As president, Marshall would travel over 30,000 miles for Red Cross business.

Think the 71-year-old Marshall Plan is history? Think again.

The Marshall Plan has become a big buzz word in this year's political campaigns. But how does this work of post-war peace compare to candidates' 21st century promises? Listen to NPR All Things Considered and get some better insight into what General Marshall's vision entailed.

What better way to celebrate #InternationalDayofPeace than by recognizing the architect of post-WWII #peace, George C. Marshall.

General Marshall’s peacekeeping efforts from defeating the Axis powers to rebuilding war-torn Europe through the Marshall Plan to saving the American Red Cross make him the foremost symbol of peace in the 20th century.

Happy #ConstitutionDay! On this day in 1787, the US Constitution was signed by 39 members of the Constitutional Convention.

On September 1, 1939, 80 years ago today, Brig. General George C. Marshall jumps three ranks to General has he is sworn in as U.S. Army Chief of Staff.

But why did Marshall wear a white suit instead of his military uniform? This was in fact a strategic move as the same day, Hitler invaded Poland, igniting the Second World War. Marshall did not want the US to appear aggressively militaristic, something a uniform could convey from a country who was not yet keen on involving itself in foreign affairs. And who doesn’t love a snazzy suit?

“I knew I should’ve turned left at Albuquerque!” -Bugs Bunny

Although George Marshall might not have mistakenly turned right at Albuquerque, he certainly had his fair share of soldiers who did. In planning battles such as the Meuse-Argonne Offensive and Saint-Mihiel Salient during #WWI, Marshall became known as “the wizard” for orchestrating complicated troop, supply, artillery and cavalry movements at the front.

Logistical nightmares continued throughout Marshall’s career, from D-Day to the Korean Conflict to passing federal legislation, and Marshall met them all head-on with “wizard-like” success.
