Sleepy Hollow - New Millenia Don't Happen Every Day!
In speech during inquest very early in film (still in New York City), Ichabod Crane remarks that it being 1799, a new *millenium* is at hand. Unless he planned to live another two hundred years, he meant a new *century*.

NO! The twentieth century did not have only 99 years. Depending on how you look at it, it would either include 1900 or 2000, either way making it contain 100 years.

If Ichabod was using the Gregorian calender,as I assume he was,he wouldn't be talking about a "new millenium" since 800AD or 200BC. He was indeed confusing a century with a millenium, so it was a slip-up.

Okay,if notbob was quibbling about the title rather than the error, I'll withdraw the objection.

Also, people living 200 years ago had the amazing ability to actually count, and they knew that the new century started at january 1st, 1801. It was generally agreed that a century consisted of 100 years, not 99 like the 20th century apparently did.

Sorry to nit pick, but isn't this the place for it? A new millennium happens every second. Just because the year doesn't end in 000 doen't mean a thousand years have happened from some time a thousand years ago
