History of the Marine Corps
The Continental Congress passed a resolution on Nov. 10, 1775, calling for "two battalions of Marines." Early Marines served on land and sea, fighting at home and abroad. They raided the Bahamas in 1776, under the command of Capt. Samuel Nicholas. When the Revolutionary War ended in 1783, all the Navy ships were sold and the Continental Marines and Navy separated. Five years later the branches were re-established.
The Marine Corps has been in the forefront of every American war since its creation, serving around the world. The motto "First to Fight" is commonly associated with Marines.
