Knight of the Royal Order of Military Merit, Brigadier of the Armies of France and Major General in service of the United States of America.

Having served with honor and reputation for three years, he gave a last and glorious proof of his attachment to the liberties of mankind and the cause of America in the action near Camden in the state of South Carolina on the sixteenth of August, 1780. Where leading on the troops of the Maryland and Delaware lines against superior numbers and animating them by his example to deeds of valor, he was pierced with many wounds and on the nineteenth following, expired in the 48th year of his age.

The Congress of the United States of America in gratitude to his zeal, service and merit have erected this monument.
