Tun Tavern: Continental Congress
Just for historical accuracy, I would advise someone to change "First Continental Congress" to "Second Continental Congress" as that was when the Marine Corps was established. Also to add to factual information the First Continental Congress was not even in session in 1775, the Second Continental Congress was, however.
