Maryland Day

Maryland Day commemorates March 25, 1634, which is the day that English settlers landed on Maryland soil.

The settlers sailed the Ark and the Dove to St. Clement's Island on the Potomac River. After a safe voyage they celebrated with a day of thanksgiving.

I love all things Maryland and have done several posts exhibiting Maryland's rich traditions.
