To De Kalb
Here lie the remains of Baron De Kalb, German by birth, but in principle, citizen of the world.

(Left Face):
He was second in command in the battle fought near Camden, on the 16th August, 1780, between the British and Americans; and there nobly fell covered with wounds, while gallantly performing deeds of valor in rallying the friend and opposing the enemies of his adopted country.

(Rear Face):
In gratitude for his zeal and services, the citizens of Camden have erected this monument.

(Right Face):
His love of liberty induced him to leave the old world to aid the citizens of the new, in their struggle for Independence. His distinguished talents and many virtues weighed with Congress to appoint him Major General in their Revolutionary Army.
