In the memory of Somers, Caldwell, Decatur, Wadsworth, Dorsey, Israel.
The love of Glory inspired them, Fame has crowned their deeds, History records the event. The Children of Columbia admire and Commerce laments their fall.

Erected in the memory of Captain Richard Somers, Lieutenant James Caldwell, James Decatur, Henry Wadsworth, Joseph Israel, and John Dorsey who fell in the difficult attacks that were made on the city of Tripoli in the Year of our Lord 1804 and in the 28 Year of the independence of the United States.
