"Attack on the Huguenots" was painted by William D. Washington, a member of the VMI faculty in the 19th century.
On June 23, the George C. Marshall Foundation celebrated an accomplishment nearly four decades in the making: the publication of the seventh and final volume of "The Papers of George Catlett Marshall."

Visitors to the VMI post in coming weeks will notice the absence of four artifacts of VMI history. The cadet battery has been removed from the Parade Ground for restoration.
