Questions to How Well Do You Know Sleepy Hollow?

Sleepy Hollow

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers about shows in the category “The Legend & Truth of Sleepy Hollow” that I posted a couple of weeks ago:

  1. I’m in Sleepy Hollow, New York, where the 18th century wooden span that this literary character would’ve used to escape danger has long rotted away, but the local cemetery has another one. – Who is Ichabod Crane?
  2. Sleepy Hollow’s Old Dutch Church was founded around 1685; Washington Irving wrote that this character tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard. – Who is the Headless Horseman?
  3. The menacing trooper in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” became a supernatural being after some nameless battle during this war. – What is the [American] Revolutionary War?
  4. As the exceedingly lank schoolmaster heads for the bridge nesr the story’s end, he “casts a look behind to see if his pursuer should vanish…in a flash of fire and” this, but is disappointed. – What is brimstone?
  5. Irving used this word for a German mercenary to describe the trooper whose head had been carried away by a cannonball. .– What is Hessian?

I guess I did my research well, as I got all of them right! How did you do?
