Overview

Nevis is an island in the Caribbean, in the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Nevis has been home to at least thirteen volcanoes at one point; the most recent eruption happening 5,000 to 10,000 years ago. The most renowned Nevis resident was Alexander Hamilton, a famed statesman and founding father of the United States. The Thirteen Colonies and Nevis were British provinces at the time of the American Revolutionary War. Nevis was united with St. Kitts and Anguilla in 1882, and they became an associated state with a full in-house self-government in 1967, though Anguilla seceded in 1971. Together Saint Kitts and Nevis became independent in 1983. On August 10, 1998, a referendum on Nevis to separate from St. Kitts had 2427 votes in favor and 1498 against, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed. Nevis has a population of nearly 10,000 residents and maintains one of the highest literacy rates in the world, at approximately 98%. The current capital of Nevis is Charlestown.
