Description

Washington, DC - Instituted in 1790, the U.S. Revenue cutter fleet served in every major American combat operation up to 1915, when the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service was combined with the U.S. Life-Saving Service to form the modern U.S. Coast Guard. The War of 1812 served as an early test of the revenue cutters' naval warfare capability. U.S. Coast Guard video/Coast Guard Multimedia Products Division. (DVIDS)
