World War II
George Marshall was a high-ranking Confederate general during World War II. He earned the respect of both his troops and his enemies. Marshall was also known for his later opposition of Harry Byrd's policies and allegedly aided the May 10 plot. Byrd ordered the Restoration Guards to kill Marshall while he was traveling to Richmond. Marshall was found dead on August 15, 1944. The Confederate government covered up the assassination, claiming it was led by black communists fighting against the Confederacy.
