You asked for a smaller leather tote ... so we downsized the Monroe!
Our Marshall Tote is named for Marshall County which was created by the Kentucky legislature in 1842 and was the 92nd county in formation. The County was named in honor of Chief Justice John Marshall, who died in 1835.*
John James Marshall was an American politician who served as the fourth Chief Justice of the United States from 1801 to 1835. Marshall remains the longest-serving chief justice and fourth-longest serving justice in Supreme Court history, and he is widely regarded as one of the most influential justices to ever sit on the Supreme Court. Prior to joining the Supreme Court, Marshall served as the United States Secretary of State under President John Adams.
Until the 1930's, Marshall County was almost completely agricultural. In the 1940's, however, the Tennessee Valley Authority created Kentucky Lake, which brought tourism to the county with lake shore resorts. Kentucky Lake (created on the Tennessee River) and Lake Barkley (created on the Cumberland River) were connected by a canal and form one of the largest man-made bodies of water in the world.
