The Providence initial began service in the Revolutionary War as the Katy. She was commissioned by the Rhode Island General Assembly to protect merchant shipping from British marauders. She was taken into the Continental Army at the end of the year, and had a diligent career from 1775 to 1779. She was scuttled by her crew on 1779 to prevent her from falling into the hands of the British.
