    The Tun Tavern Historical Marker in Philadelphia commemorates the esteemed birthplace of the United States Marine Corps. Near the intersection of South Front Street and Samson Street, a plaque honors the site where Tun Tavern once stood from 1693 to 1781. It was in this tavern that the Continental Congress authorized the creation of the Marine Corps on November 10, 1775. The marker, erected by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, celebrates the enduring legacy of the Marines with the motto Semper Fidelis, always faithful1. This site not only marks the inception of a distinguished military branch but also serves as a historical touchstone, reflecting the citys rich colonial past and its role in American independence.
