"Semper Fidelis"  The Marines In The Civil War-

Washington, D.C. Six marines with fixed bayonets at the Navy Yard

"A group of Union Marines, wearing dress uniforms and carrying Model 1842 muskets, at the Washington Navy Yard in 1864."

Civil War

  • 1861-1865 — Civil War; nearly half of Marine Corps’ officers resign their commissions to join the New Confederate States Marine Corps — Confederate Marines’ roster reads 539 — A resolution introduced to Congress was one of the first attempts to disband the Corps; idea was tabled but the thought continued
  • 18 June, 1866 — Another resolution to disband the Corps studied and dropped (21 Feb., 1867)
  • Nov. 19, 1868 — Marine Corps Emblem adopted (usually credited to CMC Jacob Zeilin; emblem nearly unchanged since that time) — The Marines’ Hymn first begins to be heard; no author credited.
  • 1883 — Marine Corps’ motto — “Semper Fidelis” or “Always Faithful” adopted, replacing other well-known motto’s of “Fortitudine” (early 1800’s) and “By Sea and By Land” (1876).
  • 1888 — John Phillip Sousa’s “Semper Fidelis” composed.
