That it's hearsay and rumors doesn't mean that it's not real. That's the problem with being historian and judging validity of your sources.

7:39 what a cut/fade to Black - and revival I happily laugh long seconds about it. So much history diving for not only an interessting Story, but an historicall fact proved one. Which is rare to see by youtubers (which I use as an insult for every channel sticking their face-in-the-camera-commentors they never explore themselves, only for click and fame). Sorry! I mean never seen by youtubers (Selbstdarsteller) - CGP Grey belongs more to Journalism.

Oral history isn't history? That's an...unconventional take.

That is incredible. About a month ago I was across that tip of Staten Island scanning that very same beach you sit on at the end wondering about what lied within that thick forest on the edge of New York City. (I can even see where I was!) Nice to know that only ghosts, graves, and rainbows were there. Wait, I can actually check the dates off of Greys phone (dates for when the manor was closed) and check them for when that party was going on. It was even an equally stormy day that day!

By this time, I'm pretty sure he had already gone insane from the amount of stupid research he had done to the point he didn't care about answers. He would have dedicated too much to something so miniscule, plus he had his own life.

I am just waiting for Part 2 where CGP Grey goes and gets a time machine to go back and witness the race first hand... or that lack of a race... then just so the trip wasn't wasted he travels forwards July 9th 1868 so that he can kill Disosway personally.
Ash 8 dias atrás
Somehow I get the impression that he will also end up doing some testing to find out if you could sail round the island(s) in a ship of the day in the supposed time.

A subtle little joke mixed with alliteration around 1:17 : "hometown historians happily Honor hometown heroes." I liked that slight emphasis on the usually silent h in "honor."

If you go to the Wikipedia page (search "Christopher Billopp (Royal Navy officer)" to not land on the other Billop) and go to "view history" you can see the all out edit war that CGP Grey started the 30th of August 2019 where he deleted the section about New York as seen in 5:56 with the only comment "Lady Godiva Story" this is the only edit that Grey did on the Wikipedia page.

I saw a lady wearing a Staten Island shirt and I had to google to find out where is it. Later at night I saw a clip about Staten Island and decided to find out more. I'm so glad I watched this video! The dedication to find out the truth is remarkable
