HISTORY OF VIRGINIA AMERICAN SCHOONER
The Virginia is a type of ship known as a 'schooner'. We are at the beginning of the 19th century. The United States undertook at that time the construction of small ships rigged in schooners, obtaining vessels of great maneuverability and elegance.
These schooners would be the seed of the later US Coast Guard, they had the mission of enforcing the new import and customs laws. The fast schooner Virginia was planned in the year 1819 and was launched in the same year. Equipped with a central rotating carronade and light weapons, due to its great speed, it was a schooner destined to control the US maritime borders on interception and pursuit missions of other ships that tried to reach the American coasts.
