The Continental fleet, consisting of eight warships under Commodore Esek Hopkins in flagship Alfred, sailed in February 1776 from the Delaware Bay to the island of New Providence, Bahamas.

After two weeks of loading, the fleet departed with a great quantity of military stores, including gunpowder, sorely needed by the army of George Washington.
