BJDK_080809_12.JPG: Sacred to the memory of the Baron De Kalb, Knight of the Royal Order of Military Merit, Brigadier of the Armies of the France and Major General in the 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.

2008 photos: Equipment this year: I was using three cameras -- the Fuji S9000 and the Canon Rebel Xti from last year, and a new camera, the Fuji S100fs. The first two cameras had their pluses and minuses and I really didn't have a single camera that I thought I could use for just about everything. But I loved the S100fs and used it almost exclusively this year.
Trips this year: (1) Civil War Preservation Trust annual conference in Springfield, Missouri , (2) a week in New York, (3) a week in San Diego for the Comic-Con, (4) a driving trip to St. Louis, and (5) a visit to dad and Dixie's in Asheville, North Carolina.
Ego strokes: A picture I'd taken last year during a Friends of the Homeless event was published in USA Today with a photo credit and everything! I became a volunteer photographer with the AFI/Silver theater.
Number of photos taken this year: 330,000.
