The Dr. Martin Luther King Foot Soldiers Memorial is the first US Memorial dedicated to the 250,000 Foot Soldiers of the 1963 March – the ordinary citizens who risked the threat of personal harm to magnify the impact of the words of the civil rights leaders who spoke that day in Washington. The foot soldiers that are honored on the memorial come not only from Annapolis, but from all over Maryland as well as other parts of the United States . These men and women played an important role in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
