Johann Dekalb, a German, served as a volunteer in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He originally came to America on a covert mission for France to assess the level of discontent of the colonists toward England. He returned a decade later in 1777 with the Marquis de Lafayette & joined the Continental Army. He died of injuries sustained during the Battle of Camden in 1780.
