    The Marine Corps was founded November 10 1775, so it actually predates the country.

    You are probably referring to the Navy Act of 1794 and since Washington was President from 1789 to 1797........


    P.S. The original founding site was Tunn's Tavern in Philadelphia; which probably explains why Marines are primarily found in taverns to this day….you just don’t question the wisdom of your founding fathers.

    This was the historynet's daily trivia question of the day. Which their consortum puts out various military, western, and various other history magazines. I thought it was Washington also, but evidently for a period of time they were disbanded

    John Adams. On July 11, 1798, signed the act that officially established the U.S. Marine Corps. Continental marines had existed during the Revolutionary War, but had since been discontinued

    I always seemed to have an unexplainable soft spot in my heart for John Adams, now I know why.
