Plymouth is a city in southern England, located between the mouths of the Plym and Tamar Rivers. It was first mentioned in history in 1211, but there is evidence of inhabitation since the Bronze Age. During World War II, the city was heavily bombed and had to be almost entirely rebuilt, lending it a more modern look and atmosphere than is found in most British cities.

Charles Hector d'Estaing: After temporarily leaving the French Navy due to a battle wound and joining the French East India Company for a year, I was accused of violating my parole and taken here in 1760, where I stayed until 1761 as a prisoner. I was eventually able to overturn this charge, and immediately traveled back to France in search of further adventure.
