[00:00:06] Scott: Good evening, happy 2023. Happy New Year.
[00:00:10] Happy New Year, Jen. So this is our first video of the new year.
[00:00:15] This is the first video for us on Walk with History of 2023. So we’re recording this kind of as a retrospective, we. For 2022, we’re gonna go over our top 10 most viewed videos of 2022. So published in 2022, published in 2022,
[00:00:28] and this is a fun timestamp. I think I wanna do this every year because it’ll be fun in a year, two years, three years, five years to revisit, to look back and be like, Hey, look at 2022.
[00:00:38] We were at about 7,700 subscribers right now. Yes. So thank you to all our subscribers out there.
[00:00:44] Thank you to our community. I mean, that’s really what we should lead off with is, is thank you to you guys. So much fun. because you guys interact with us because we get to meet you. We email, we exchange remarks in the comments and it’s just a ton of fun. Like even there’s, there’s Tommy right there in the comments.
[00:01:02] Jenn: And you guys give us great ideas.
[00:01:04] Tuskegee Airman at Arlington was an idea.
[00:01:07] Scott: Yeah. That was from someone who, from a viewer.
[00:01:08] So thank you from, from a viewer. That was a great one. And honestly, I really enjoyed that video.
[00:01:13] Scott: So our, our 10th most viewed video of 2022
[00:01:18] is actually our last video of 2022. Yes. And that was, that was Christmas in Colonial Williamsburg.
[00:01:23] Jenn: Yes. It’s, it’s great how that’s like popped up with being with having a lot of views.
[00:01:28] Yeah. But I think people like to look at Christmas time. They like to look at videos of Christmas
[00:01:32] Scott: time and, and that was a video that we’d wanted to do for a
[00:01:34] Jenn: while. Sure. Because Williamsburg. it. It’s something special. Yeah. That they do. And it’s different and it’s fun and it’s nostalgic. And so we got to go there and show you what it looks like at Christmas time, how it’s decorated at Christmas time.
[00:01:48] And we did the grand
[00:01:50] Scott: illumination. Yeah. Which is a, you can only see it three times a year and it’s only at Christmas time.
[00:01:56] Jenn: I mean, us moving from Erie, Pennsylvania to Norfolk, Virginia, we. The window is milder. Yeah. And so you could be outside and actually put fire off fireworks
[00:02:06] Scott: and it was a lot of fun. Yeah. And actually, Tommy, your comment in
[00:02:09] the, he asked if we can do anti tetum, so we’re gonna talk about a couple things that we have planned coming up this year.
[00:02:14] So that’s potentially on, on the list of things that we, that we want to do. So we’ll talk about that at the end, if you wanna stick around to, to things that we have planned for 2023. Yeah. We’d love some ideas. Give us some ideas. Yeah. So that was number 10. That was number 10. Which was pretty cool because even though it was our most recent video, it did pretty decently.
[00:02:31] Mm-hmm. right up front.
[00:02:33] Scott: So number nine, most popular video for us in 2022
[00:02:38] was, his name is Dr. Mud, the Lincoln assassination. So that
[00:02:42] Jenn: was an neat one to do because I was driving to you, you were in Newport? Yeah. For work. For work. And I was driving to you with the kids and I took a back road. To DC and I drove by a sign that said assassin.
[00:02:57] Yeah, demise died here or something. Died here. And that’s, and I stopped. Backed up and it was where John Wilkes Booth
[00:03:03] was killed and you were like driving
[00:03:04] Scott: down the freeway. . It’s
[00:03:06] Jenn: not a freeway. Freeway, but Yes, yes. Yeah. And so I knew Dr. Mud was close. Yeah. Because if you know the story, you know that Dr.
[00:03:13] Mud helped out John Wilkes booth. Yep. He didn’t make it far from there. So we went to the Dr. Mud’s house. If you watched the video, it wasn’t open .
[00:03:22] Scott: Yeah, that’s right. That was, that was actually a fun video and. Better than I expected. But I think we did a good job of really telling the story of how involved Dr.
[00:03:33] Jenn: actually was. Sure. And what the.
[00:03:35] What the evidence points to with Dr. Mudd, there is a lot of controversy and as you can see in the comments
[00:03:40] from that video, there are people who take different sides. Yep. And you, we were able to go to Dr. Mudd’s grave
[00:03:47] and that church where he’s buried at is the place where he met John Wilkes Booth for the first time.
[00:03:52] Yeah. Before the assassination. For the assassination. And then we talk about what happened to Dr. Mudd after. . And so it was a very interesting story.
[00:04:01] Scott: Moving up the list number. Eight.
[00:04:03] It was actually a first of two videos we did as a collaboration with JD from History Underground.
[00:04:09] And so this was the Women of Arlington National Cemetery.
[00:04:12] Jenn: Yeah, that was a great one to do. It was great to do with jd. We pivoted that day. We had planned to do another video, which we still have planned to do, and we, we couldn’t do that one. We couldn’t have access that day. So we said, why don’t we just go to Arlington?
[00:04:26] There’s a woman. Museum at Arlington. And so we went in there and actually JD was recognized. Yeah.
[00:04:33] Scott: Yeah. So, so the JD had already been filming in the area. Mm-hmm. , he was doing a, a trip out east JD from the history underground, from the history underground.
[00:04:40] And so we met up with them. We had kind of planned this in advance. And this was the day after you got back from London? Yes. So she had just spent two weeks in London. She had been filming every day, just going a hundred miles an hour. She flew back, slept home that night, and that next morning we got up and we took the kids and we drove up to DC to meet up with jd.
[00:05:00] That’s how much I love history. And it, but it ended up being really fun. It was. And so we got to visit the wo, the Women’s Memorial. And talk
[00:05:08] Jenn: about some significant women who are buried at Arlington. Yep. And I think it was great for jd being a, a female veteran. I gave a different perspective.
[00:05:16] Yeah. I kind of put him on the spot, asked him how he felt about women in the military. Yeah. I love doing that to guys. Yeah. And it was a really, a great video.
[00:05:23] I love collaborations. I love collaborating with jd. We have kind of known each other since our, both of our channels were kind of an infancy.
[00:05:31] Yeah. So it’s kind of neat to see his channel really has taken
[00:05:33] Scott: off. He’s, he’s amazing. If you haven’t checked out his under. After this live stream, go check him out because his, his videos are, are really, really good. He’s
[00:05:42] Jenn: fun, but he’s a great historian and just a really great person and we love collaborate collaborating
[00:05:47] Scott: with him.
[00:05:48] Yeah, so, so that was, that was a really fun one. And speaking of London,
[00:05:53] Scott: so just a few days prior to that is our number seven video and that was the Churchill War Rooms. Fantastic.
[00:05:59] That’s, that’s honestly probably, Favorite video that turned out after I edited it because
[00:06:07] Jenn: you edited it so well with Churchill’s speeches.
[00:06:10] Voice. Yes. And so Churchill’s speeches really gave a lot of atmosphere as you’re walking through these war rooms. So if you don’t know the history here, this is where Churchill basically managed World War II underneath the ground of London and. How they set this whole place up to be efficient and protective during the blitz, because basically they’re getting bombed every day, any time and they need to keep running the war and being efficient and keeping the intelligence as fast, keeping it going as fast as possible.
[00:06:45] So was, and they had not changed it. Yeah. So they shut off when the war was over, they had shut off the lights in these war rooms. And these are like underground bunkers. Yeah. And they just didn’t clean anything up or do anything.
[00:06:58] Scott: I think people were just, they just, they just left it alone for like 60 years.
[00:07:00] Jenn: are just exhausted, I think. And they were like, okay. So what it was neat is they were able to just turn back on the lights, leave things as they were last month, certain things, certain sections of it, and just give
[00:07:10] Scott: you the story. Yeah. And, and, and I think that video. . It did so well. One, because World War ii.
[00:07:16] Right? World War II is a very popular topic in the history niche.
[00:07:19] We’re showing people, we’re educating people about mm-hmm.
[00:07:21] what happened in World War II and, and what the English did. And the, just the, the war,
[00:07:25] the war rooms themselves were really, really neat. I think that even I would’ve enjoyed. , yes. Going there
[00:07:31] Jenn: in person. So my suggestion is it’s, it’s a popular attraction in London. Yeah. If you’re gonna do it, I did not buy tickets beforehand.
[00:07:37] I recommend you do that. I was just the first person in line when it opened. Yes. You got there early And I got there early and a lot of people take tour guides with them. I’ve not, I noticed you really don’t need them.
[00:07:47] You can read the stuff on the side or do your research before you go, but it was really neat to be there early so then I could film and they let me film everything, which I really appreciate about them as well.
[00:07:58] Scott: So if we’re moving on from there, it was actually a little bit older video.
[00:08:02] Again, it was kind of when you were coming up to visit me. Mm-hmm. up in the Rhode Island area for that work trip. Was visiting the real sleepy.
[00:08:10] Jenn: It was amazing. I mean, as you’re, if you’re a kid and you watched the Disney Legend of Sleepy Hollow Yeah. With Bean Crosby narrating the story of Iba Crane.
[00:08:20] The story of Icabod Crane has really lived in my psych, my heart, since I was a child. I wanted to. See it. Yeah. And be a part of it. And it was so neat to go to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, you get to see the bridge, the entire story that Washington Irvin dreamed up. And there were, there’s some history throughout it.
[00:08:38] Like the headless horseman was actually the Yeah. It’s
[00:08:41] Scott: it’s semi historic revolutionary soldier. Yeah. It was a historical ghost,
[00:08:44] Jenn: kind of ghost story. And we’re, Andre was captured having the plans for. West Point Right. Is where Icabod Crane first encounters the headless
[00:08:55] Scott: horseman. Yeah. And it was neat for me when we go back, went back and made the video, and I, I show you along a map kind of where he would’ve met the headless horseman mm-hmm.
[00:09:05] and the, the path that he took. And it’s basically the main drag. It is, this is the main
[00:09:08] Jenn: route’s kind, which in the time would be Right. Yeah. Cause that’s the main path.
[00:09:11] Scott: But it was just neat to see that on the path. Right. Hey, here’s. Points. Yes. Where it shows this in the cartoon and that in the cartoon and this, that and the other.
[00:09:19] It was so neat where the, where the house was and they had the party and he’s telling ’em the ghost story and singing. Yes. Right. And then when he takes off and goes across the bridge to the church Yes. And, and all that stuff. Mm-hmm. that was. . That was just a fun, it was fun, fun video. Yeah. And it kind of took off, I mean, not long around, not long after, kind of Halloween.
[00:09:37] Jenn: ish, right around that. Which again, I think people really wanna learn about something that’s significant
[00:09:43] Scott: to their Yeah. And that’s something that’s timeless. I, I think that that video will age pretty well. Memories.
[00:09:48] Scott: So top five.
[00:09:49] And this one, I was not surprised that it did as well as it.
[00:09:51] Was another London video. Another England video was Major Dick Winters in the Band of Brothers in, in England before
[00:09:58] Jenn: D-Day. Yes. And I, this is something that hadn’t been done before and I, I, it was really significant for me to do. Band of Brothers is.
[00:10:06] been done a lot. Yeah. On YouTube. It’s very, very popular. Very popular. But I really wanted to dive more into Dick Winters and his motivations. Yep. And his you’re leading men into war and what his life was like, the buildup for that, and how he kind of prepared for that.
[00:10:25] And so his time in Alderon, which is where they were before the D-day landing, he had spent some time with a civilian English family.
[00:10:35] and they were very significant to him, and I wanted to pay my respects to them, their grave in Al Debo and tell more of that
[00:10:43] Scott: story. Yeah. Then, and we show some clips from the Bandon Brothers series. Mm-hmm. of where in the, in the series that would’ve taken place in Alder Bourne. Mm-hmm. , because they spent like, Eight months.
[00:10:54] Oh, there, that’s why they were the largest. So they were there for a very long time, like really living with these families. And so we should kind of show clips of that. And it was neat because I think the one thing that you did that’s unique from some of the other stuff that I’ve seen on Banda Brothers was talk about how Dick Winters said this place and this family and that time there was so transformational for him and.
[00:11:17] Well known real life character. Mm-hmm. as well as a character in the series. Yes. He’s the, like the primary character. Yes.
[00:11:26] Jenn: And I think it’s significant for Scott and I, both officers in the military. Yeah. Leadership, what, what does it take to lead people into combat? Yeah. And Dick Winters really makes it about the simplicity of.
[00:11:39] And I, I appreciated
[00:11:41] Scott: that. Yeah. That, that was the new one. And I wasn’t surprised it was gonna do well. Mm-hmm. , I think anything that you kind of threw out there with banded brothers on YouTube, there’s lots of people looking for that stuff. So that was a fun one.
[00:11:50] Scott: The next video on our list, number four.
[00:11:53] Of our top 10 was actually the one.
[00:11:56] Another fun one for us was the history of Army navy surplus stores since 1946.
[00:12:01] Jenn: Yeah, that is so cool. So Norfolk has a, an Army navy surplus store that we would drive by all the time, and it’s been here since 1946 and we stopped in and I just thought it was the most amazing place.
[00:12:16] Lots of history everywhere and. , I asked if I could make a video and they were, they were all for it. And so just to learn about what was surplus and how did that happen and how they keep going and kind of the artifacts they get in now and the things that you can find in a surplus store and just the great stories and,
[00:12:37] Scott (2): and, and just the, the, so the store owner?
[00:12:39] Mm-hmm. owners, right. Larry and his sister. Laura? Yes. They were like super accommodating. And Jenna had actually kind of connected with them through his daughter who she’d followed online and, and again, from a production standpoint, it was fun to just go and film there. Yes. Because there’s so many interesting things to see.
[00:12:57] And then Larry had some great stories about different artifacts and we’re considering kind of reaching out and maybe trying to do Sure. video pieces on, on things there, because they have some
[00:13:06] Jenn: very interesting artifacts, very interesting things. M and g sales. Yeah. In Norfolk. Yeah. They’ve been around since 1946.
[00:13:12] And then just to understand, I wasn’t quite sure how surplus came about. Yeah. But if you can understand the, the ramp up for the war. and all the stuff that was made for the military and then the war ended. Yeah. In 1945 and they had all of this stuff, it became surplus. Yeah. And that I thought was fascinating.
[00:13:30] And then how it gets sold And people want military
[00:13:33] Scott: grade. Well, and, and just su some of their customers are, so they get a lot of theater. Mm-hmm. , right, because. Props and costumes and uniforms. Yes. And things like that. So that was really fun. And the kids loved it there. And Larry was really great with Madison, our daughter.
[00:13:47] Yes. Because she asked him like, literally I think a million questions. Yeah. She loves going there. And he just, he loved it.
[00:13:53] Scott: Number three we’re breaking into the top three.
[00:13:55] Top three for our top 10 videos of 2022 was actually again, our second collaboration video with JD from the History Underground. It was the same day, same trip was the Arlington House tour. So,
[00:14:06] Jenn: Again, we pivoted. We went to Arlington. There’s a lot of history there that needs to be told.
[00:14:13] Yeah. And Arlington house had been closed previously for other videos because of Covid. Yep. And this day it happened to be open and we got so lucky. Arlington house is Robert e Lee’s plantation before the civil. and Robert E. Lee is married at Arlington house. This is the place that he leaves from. His wife will leave from.
[00:14:39] Scott: So before it was Arlington National Cemetery. It was his home. It was
[00:14:42] Jenn: his home. And we tell this story like the Lee Robert E. Lee has married into George Washington’s family. Yep. Robert e Lee’s wife, Custis. Mary Custis is a descendant of George Washington, and that’s why this land is prime real estate in Washington, DC It overlooks the Potomac.
[00:15:01] It’s on a hill. You have a great vantage point of dc It’s because George Washington was like, I want this land, and I like it right now. He didn’t build on it. It was a, it was an ancestor of his that built on it, but she inherited the house. When Robert E. Lee marries her, he inherits the house and then they’re married there.
[00:15:20] So it was very neat to see that history and walk around
[00:15:23] Scott: that house. And they had, I think they had like a surprising amount of like original like furniture and stuff? Yes. Like that furniture artifacts. Oh, that actually kind of surprised me for, for how much? What is, what like has gone on there? Mm-hmm.
[00:15:36] Right. Especially like how long it’s been around and then kind of ransacked during the Civil war. Yeah. Ransacked during the Civil War and, and the video we get, we show kind of like an old. 18 hundreds errors, photo, and then we show a today photo mm-hmm. , and it looks pretty much the same. Yes. Now obviously they’ve maintained it and they have other stuff that they displayed behind it, talking about Selena Gray and some
[00:15:59] Jenn: of the slave, so they make sure she a significant part of the story.
[00:16:02] Yeah. Because she that’s cool. Yeah. They, her, the enslaved saved a lot of the artifacts because they were left behind and they saved a lot of the things that
[00:16:10] Scott: are there. Yeah. So that was That was our number three most popular viewed video, and I think. Part of it was JD kind of gave us like a, a big old shout out on his channel.
[00:16:21] He did. He’s such a great guy. And and he pointed to that video.
[00:16:25] Scott: Now we’re into the, in the top two and these, these two videos, Have just had kind of nice long legs.
[00:16:31] Sure. All the way through the year. They’re probably two of our earliest videos. I think they were published in J like right in January and February, yes. Of 2022. So number two on our list is
[00:16:43] historic Jamestown, Virginia. And I think, honestly this is one of those ones that’s just very searchable because we did a good job of just kind of showing a little bit of everything that you can find in historic Jamestown and when people.
[00:16:57] Are searching like, Hey, I’m gonna be in Jamestown, or I’m gonna go do the whole Colonial Williamsburg area, the triangle, the historic town. They’re gonna look up our other video in Colonial Williamsburg, and then they’re gonna look up
[00:17:07] Jenn: Jamestown. So what’s interesting about Jamestown, and I’ll talk about this a little bit, we, you have the historic triangle where we are.
[00:17:12] So what is the historic triangle? It’s Williamsburg Yorktown, Jamestown. They call that the historic triangle cuz they’re all very close in proximity. Jamestown. Two areas, and you can kind of get confused about them. Yeah. Jamestown has a museum where they recreate what Jamestown would’ve looked like. They tell you the story of Jamestown.
[00:17:32] You can walk through and you’re like, oh, is this Jamestown? No, that’s not . Yeah. So the National Park Service actually has the actual location, and if you go to the actual location, It’s not really recreated to look like Jamestown because it’s still an active dig. Yeah. And they’re still looking for things.
[00:17:50] But they do have a great big statue there of John Smith. Yep. And they kind of have the outline of the church where Pocahontas was married and they have. They have found some bones and they’ve recreated some colonial lives. Jane is one of them. And so there’s a kind of museum off to the side that tells that story, and that is Jamestown.
[00:18:13] That is the actual location where the settlers. First touch ground. That’s where they meet Pocahontas and her family. And, and this is the years of living and surviving. That’s the location, the recreation of Jamestown Museum is made to look how that would have looked. Yeah. But it’s not on the actual spot.
[00:18:35] And there are two separate locations you drive to separately. So I
[00:18:37] Scott: think when we, we were confused at first, we stumbled upon it. And, and honestly like the, the first one we went to, the one that in this particular video, like the museum there was great, like the That’s right. Whole, the displays, I mean, they, they go all out. It’s really, really nice. And
[00:18:49] Jenn: you can interact again with.
[00:18:51] The historic figures there. Yeah. And you can ask them questions. Yeah. And they know their history and so it’s just really great to have that. The kids loved it. Yeah. They got to learn how to like, make flower.
[00:19:03] Scott: Yeah. And I mean, I think that video’s probably had a few thousand views. Yeah. It’s really great.
[00:19:09] Which for our channel right now before we explode. I’m gonna , I’m gonna, I’m gonna put it out there. You can explode , but that’s pretty good for us.
[00:19:16] Scott: Let’s talk about the number one. Most popular video for, for our in in 2022.
[00:19:21] But that was staying in a colonial home in Williamsburg.
[00:19:24] And again, I think this is one of those ones. From just a kind of production side that people are looking, they go to YouTube and they go to Google and they’re like, Hey, what’s it look like? What’s it like to stay in a home in Colonial Williamsburg? Should I stay in one? Sure. And our video, I mean, it’s got almost 10,000 views.
[00:19:41] And because I think people are looking for that,
[00:19:43] Jenn: I’ve had a lot of comments on there saying, I didn’t know what the inside looked like.
[00:19:46] Thank you for posting this. And that’s kind of what we were going through too. Looking for a colonial house to stay in, which you can, they, they give you options, but you don’t know what they look like. Yeah. And
[00:19:57] Scott: some, some of ’em are like, Like joint units. Yes. Or they’re, they’re super
[00:20:03] Jenn: Super small.
[00:20:04] Or they have they’re just like the kitchen that’s kind of been recreated to look that, that makes it look like a home. Or you can stand like, The bigger houses, right. That have like hotel rooms. But we got the whole house and nobody had made a video from the house to kind of show you this is what the house looks like and these are what the rooms look like and this is what’s this is what the bathroom looks like.
[00:20:26] Yeah. And so we did a whole kind of tour of the house and this home was. Martha Washington’s,
[00:20:32] Scott: Martha Washington’s, I think grandfathers or fathers or something like, like that? Yes. Yeah, he rented grandfathers. He had like rented it out. It was one of his properties.
[00:20:40] Jenn: Yes, yes, yes. So and so that was the, so Martha Washington would have been around there and visited.
[00:20:47] So it was very neat to stay in that home. And you’re right there, like we were right across the street from the Colonial Williamsburg Inn. And we had a fire made. You can have fire made. They can, they will make a fire in the home if it’s less than like 40 degrees outside or something. Yeah. Yeah. But no one else had done that.
[00:21:06] And we take you on a step by step through the whole thing. And I think a lot of people appreciate that before they stay in this, these houses,
[00:21:12] Scott: they get to see. Yeah. They wanna see like, Hey, is it worth the money that I’m spending, or, yes. My whole family will comfortable, is it, is it big enough, right?
[00:21:18] Mm-hmm. , the, the particular place we stayed in, We went a little bit bigger just because we wanted to, to try something special. Mm-hmm. and you, the family of you probably could, had six, seven people stay in that place. Yes. Pretty comfortably. Yes. It was great. So that was, that was a tonen of fun. So that, that was our, our, our top 10 videos of, of 2022.
[00:21:36] Scott: So let’s give what, what are a couple things that we have planned without kind of laying it all out there.
[00:21:43] What are, what are some things we have on the,
[00:21:44] Jenn: on the, and if you have any suggestions, please put them in the chat.
[00:21:50] But some of the things that we are super excited about, we definitely wanna do
[00:21:54] Monticello. Yep. We live. And we need to get out there. Yeah. And show everybody what Monticello looks like.
[00:22:01] We are going to do the loving case, so that’s kind of important to me. That’s interracial marriage. The, the lovings were the first to Go up against the Supreme Court and they are here.
