The United States Marine Corps was born in Tun Tavern. Tun Tavern was a respectable establishment. It was visited by figures such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. The tavern was established during 1685. Before we were even considered a nation!

On November 10th, 1775, Continental Congress saw fit to raise two battalions of Marines to serve in the Continental Army. The search for recruits yielded Tun Tavern, an eatery and bar located in Philadelphia. With the promise of a cold beer and adventure, many signed up to become one of the first few! The recruits were put under the charge of Captain Samuel Nicholas, the first Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Tun Tavern was ran by Robert and Peggy Mullan, who are considered to be the first Marine Corps Recruiters. The original bar does not stand today. Yet you could walk inside a replica at the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, Virginia. Or travel to Philadelphia and seethe site where it once stood.

To honor the first Marines in Corps history, Devil Dog Shirts has created the US Marine Corps Tun Tavern Alumni Shirt. Tun Tavern is our history, our heritage, and our birthplace. Without a stiff drink many men may not have had the will to join our crazy war-fighting, gun-slinging institution! Semper Fidelis!
