The Caroline/George was taken in a mutiny
1724-11-03
Edit

At ten at night, Gow and his gang started fire guns. Most of the officers were at sleep, but captain Freneau was on deck. He was seized by Winter, Melvin and Rollson. One of them stabbed the captain in his throat, and Gow shot him twice with his pistols before pushing him into the sea.

Gow took command of the vessel and Williams became lieutenant. They changed the name to The Revenge.
