American Revolutionary War South Carolina's first naval actions of the American Revolutionary War occurred in July 1775, when the province's Council of Safety (Committee of Safety (American Revolution)) hired two captains to assist Georgia (Georgia (U. S. state)) in the capture British (Kingdom of Great Britain) ships carrying arms and gunpowder. Paullin, p. 418 That month the council also hired a ship, the ''Commerce'', for the purpose of acquiring gunpowder that the British had stored at Nassau (Nassau, Bahamas) in the Bahamas. She was outfitted for this purpose, but word of the anticipated arrival of British ships carrying arms and gunpowder at Savannah, Georgia prompted her to be used to capture those ships instead. These activities netted the colonial cause more than 25,000 pounds of gunpowder. Paullin, pp. 418-419 In October 1775, the council acquired the schooner ''Defence'', and hired Simon Tufts as her captain. After she had a brief exchange with British ships in Charleston (Charleston, South Carolina) harbor in November, the provincial congress voted to seize the ''Prosper'' to assist in driving the British ships away, and established a commission to oversee naval affairs.

Nassau, Bahamas

'''Nassau''' The city is ultimately named for the German town Nassau (Nassau, Rhineland-Palatinate).

Nassau's modern growth began in the late eighteenth century, with the influx of thousands of American Loyalists (Loyalist (American Revolution)) and their slaves to the Bahamas following the American Revolutionary War. Many of them settled in Nassau (then and still the commerce capital of the Bahamas) and eventually came to outnumber the original inhabitants.

As the population of Nassau grew, so did its populated areas. Today the city dominates the entire island and its satellite, Paradise Island. However, until the post-Second World War era, the outer suburbs scarcely existed. Most of New Providence was uncultivated bush until Loyalists were resettled there following the American Revolutionary War; they established several plantations, such as Clifton and Tusculum. Slaves were imported as labour.

After the British abolished the international slave trade in 1807, they resettled thousands of Africans liberated from slave ships by the Royal Navy on New Providence (at Adelaide Village and Gambier Village), along with other islands such as Grand Bahama, Exuma, Abaco and Inagua. In addition, slaves freed from American ships, such as the Creole case in 1841, were allowed to settle here. The largest concentration of Africans historically lived in the "Over-the-Hill" suburbs of Grants Town and Bain Town to the south of the city of Nassau, while most of the inhabitants of European descent lived on the island's northern coastal ridges.
