The Virginia is a type of vessel known as a ‘schooner’ launched in 1819, as we mentioned earlier. It was very fashionable, along with other small rigged boats, in the United States for its great speed, maneuverability and elegance. Precisely, these schooners were the germ of the US Coast Guard. Its objective? To comply with the new import and customs laws thanks, in addition, to its central rotating carronade and light weapons. It dedicated itself to controlling maritime borders in interception and pursuit missions of other ships that tried to reach its coast.
