The corvette takes its place in our navy only beginning in 1696 when it is referred to as a "corvette or long bark." It appears in annual inventories until 1746 when the term "long bark" falls off and only the name "corvette"is retained. We felt it was important to choose a distinctive example of this type of ship in our navy during the Restoration. Hence the choice of the Creole, whose celebrity is heightened by the role she played in San Juan de Ulloa, Mexico, in 1838, under the command of the young prince de Joinville.
