HAPPY 238th BIRTHDAY USMC


Happy to The United States Marine Corps and to all of the Jar Heads/Devil Dogs that are now serving or have served. Without you the USA would be in a lot worse shape than it is today.

According to tradition, Tun Tavern was where the United States Marines
held their first recruitment drive. On November 10, 1775, the First Continental Congress commissioned Samuel Nicholas, a Quaker innkeeper, to raise two battalions of Marines in Philadelphia. The tavern’s manager, Robert Mullan, was the “chief Marine Recruiter.”

Prospective volunteers flocked to the place, enticed by cold beer and
the opportunity to join the new corps. The first Continental Marine
company was composed of one hundred Rhode Islanders commanded by Captain Nicholas. Each year on November 10, U.S. Marines worldwide toast the memory of this colonial inn.
