Hamilton 22kPaul Hamilton was born in St. Paul’s Parish, S.C. on 16 October 1762. He fought under Generals Gates, Marion, and Harden in the American Revolution. He participated in the capture of Fort Balfour with the latter. He served South Carolina in many public offices including comptroller (1800–1804) and governor (1804–1806). President Monroe appointed him Secretary of the Navy in 1809. Hamilton was a proponent of military preparedness, especially sea fortifications. Although he wanted to strengthen the Navy, he found the Congress hostile and the President indifferent to his ideas. However he was responsible for the Naval Hospitals Act of 1811. He resigned in 1813 and died in Beaufort, South Carolina on 30 June 1819.Steven A. Cardali/Robert M. Cieri
