It is said that in 1776, at the Battle of the White Plains during the American Revolutionary War, a Hessian soldier on horseback, fighting for the British, had his head blown clear off by a cannonball. Imagine it, a bowling ball of iron crashing through your skull. You’ve seen watermelons get smashed with a sledge hammer, right? Same thing really.

And while on most days this wouldn’t really be polite conversation, this is The Lady Dicks, where we indulge our dark side a little bit and talk about a few gruesome and gory stories. And of those stories, few are as iconic as the story of the Headless Horseman from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Lady Dicks dick-tect history, mystery and paranormal tales from around the world. Hailing from Canada, Andrea and Tae are a terribly cheesy comedic duo that covers some of life’s biggest mysteries and peskiest ghosts.
