Wow, I saw so so many similarities in this article.

The US Marine Corps was born and formed in a Tavern.

On 10 Nov 1775, the Continental Congress authorized Two Battalions of Marines to raised.

Captain Samuel Nicholls began recruiting and raised the Battalions from Tun Tavern, Philadelphia, Colony of Pennsylvania.
