Seems like Oda has taken some of the pirate's names from real life. I just watched a document about the world's famoust pirates, and there was Blackbeard (Edward Teach) as the "world's most famous pirate".
Names such as Edward Newgate aka. Whitebeard and Marshall D. Teach aka. Blackbeard seems to have a connection to real pirates. Do you happen to know any more pirates in One Piece who's names have something in common with some real pirates.
Btw. Hello everyone.
