If the event this came to fruition, what would Virginia’s currency look like? Well, Marshall knows one thing: “We’re not going to be printing money with Dave Matthews or Jeff Davis on the front of it,” he said.

Consider us impressed that Marshall’s list of Virginia historical figures includes the leader of the Confederacy during the Civil War and a guy whose music was the soundtrack for the lives of an entire generation of college town bros. That said, should the currency ever come to pass, it should obviously be decorated with Marshall’s visage.
