In need of arms and gunpowder, General Washington formed the first Continental Navy in order to capture British ships sneaking armaments into American harbors. He also created five companies of marines to help protect them and be the first ones on the ground. Twelve of these marines carried drums as was customary at the time. Painted on the sides of these yellow drums was a coiled rattlesnake (only found in the USA) and the motto “don’t tread on me”. A warning, not a plea.
Historically seen as the first flag of the U.S. Marine Corp, the motto, “Don’t tread on me” represents the truest sense of freedom and the toughest people that stand behind its protection.
