Benefactor of Two Hemispheres

— Born a Noble of France —

He served as citizen soldier of American liberty, the cherished friend of Washington - by whose side he fought and bled, in defence of a great principle that the only legitimate government is that which derives its authority from the governed.

A patriot, fearless and firm in days of terror. A man of unchanging integrity under changing dynasties. The constant supporter of constitutional freedom.

Like Washington - he died in voluntary retirement, leaving a name that belongs to history, the lesson of his life to future generations, his most revered memory to every American.

Originally dedicated in 1869
