Tun Tavern, Philadelphia, is the birthplace of the United States Marine Corps! This was a very popular bar during colonial days. It was frequented by people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. The tavern itself was established as early during 1685!
On November 10th, 1775, Continental Congress saw fit to raise two battalions of Marines. The search was on for recruits. Tun Tavern was a natural selection. With the promise of a cold beer and adventure, many citizens signed up to become one of the few! The new recruits were placed under the charge of Captain Samuel Nicholas. The rest is Marine Corps History!
