The Major General Baron de Kalb Award
Emmy award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Rita Cosby will be a special guest at this year’s 42nd annual Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup steeplechase race in Camden. As part of the Nov. 19 event -- billed as “military appreciation day” -- Cosby will be presented the first-ever Major General Baron de Kalb Award which she will accept for -- and on behalf of -- her father, Richard Cosby, 85. The award is named for the Bavarian-born Continental Army hero who was mortally wounded in the Battle of Camden on Aug. 16, 1780, during the American Revolution.
