From Turnip Seed Grew Marshall

Record #:
From free turnip seed, the tie-breaking ballot for building new courthouse was cast. From being built in Lapland, Zebulon Vance predicted the new courthouse would flourish. With a few years, Lapland was renamed Marshall, and a third courthouse was built. Today, the town renamed for a chief justice and its symbol of justice testify to Vance’s vision.
