Inscription
After braving a four month voyage from England, the Maryland colonists first landed on St. Clements Island. It was here that Governor Leonard Calvert took possession "...for Saviour and Sovereigh..." on March 25, 1634. The seeds of Religious Toleration and Separation of Church and State that were first planted on St. Clements Island are now protected by the United States Constitution. It is the brave adventurers that this tribute is dedicated.
