Goodreads asked Keith R.A. DeCandido:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Keith R.A. DeCandido My most recent book is the upcoming SLEEPY HOLLOW novel CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION, and the idea for that one actually came from a visit to the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art here in New York City, specifically the room that contains a portrait of Marinus Willett and the elegant sword he was awarded for his service to the American Revolution, as well as the next gallery over, which contains the famous portrait of George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas 1776.

As to how that inspired the story -- well, you'll just have to read the book when it comes out in September..............
