More information about Final Jeopardy:
John and Priscilla Alden are both characters in 1858’s The Courtship of Miles Standish, a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poem focuses on a love triangle between three people: John Alden, Priscilla Mullins, and Miles Standish. While the main characters of the poem are based on three passengers of the Mayflower, debate has raged on since publication as to whether the story is fact or fiction.
