This Day in U.S. Coast Guard History - March 14
1819-The 23 March 1819 edition of the New York Evening Post reported: "The Artegan Privateer GENERAL ARTIGAS was yesterday brought into this port. The ARTIGAS sailed from Baltimore about 5 months ago, commanded by Captain Ford, with a complement of 60 men and 10 guns. They took no prizes, though they boarded a number of Portuguese vessels but permitted them to proceed unmolested. She touched at St. Domingo, there parted her cable in a gale, then proceeded on her cruise. She sprung a leak and then put into the Chesapeake, the crew then mutinied and nearly the whole of them left the vessel and went on shore. She was taken possession of by the Cutter MONROE, March 14, 1819."
