231 YearsAgo Today...
Via Rand Simberg comes this bit of Leatherneck trivia.
Today marks the 231st anniversary of the end of the first US naval amphibious assault. A little known amphibious landing by the Continental Navy using their Marines successfully raided the port of Nassau in the Bahamas in one of the first real American victories of the Revolutionary War!
