CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- While staying in Franklin County in 1859, this visitor used the alias Isaac Smith.
The Final Jeopardy! clue in a Franklin County, Pa., version of the game proved less difficult than many other prompts for three teams competing Wednesday evening in Chambersburg.
All correctly answered "Who is John Brown?"
"Our backup answer was Nellie Fox," Bill Gour quipped.
Gour, part of the winning team "The Explorers," was referring to several questions in the "baseball" and "award-winners" categories that dealt with the accomplishments of Fox, a former Chicago White Sox second baseman from St. Thomas, Pa.
Categories ranged from local landmarks to "famous people named Ben" in the new event made part of ChambersFest, a 15-day festival celebrating the rebirth of Chambersburg. Two teams won donations to the charities of their choice.
