Very interesting read, "United States Coast Guard, War of 1812" by William H. Thiesen:

Revenue Cutter Operations and the Core Coast Guard Missions
United States Coast Guard
Today, the United States Coast Guard supports nearly a dozen humanitarian, defense security and law enforcement missions. While the Coast Guard has adopted many of these missions over the course of its long history, several existed in the first twenty years of the revenue cutters’ service, when the fleet numbered less than twenty vessels. During the War of 1812, the revenue cutters protected American commerce and enforced trade legislation, but they also performed defense and combat missions that were
essential to the war effort and adopted permanently after the conflict. Maritime Protection of the New Republic Considered the founder of the United States Coast Guard, Alexander Hamilton became the first Secretary of the Treasury in 1789 and, on April 22, 1790, he submitted a request to Congress to build sea-going vessels to enforce tariffs and trade legislation. On August 4, 1790, Congress passed Secretary Hamilton’s request for these revenue cutters, marking the “birth” of the Coast Guard.This new federal maritime fleet had no official name, so officials called it “the cutters” or “system of cutters.”The
fledgling federal government disbanded the Continental Navy in 1785 and Congress did not allow for a navy initially under the Constitution, so between 1790 and 1798 these cutters were the only federal vessels protecting the coast, trade and maritime interests of the new republic.
