    Sleepy Hollow is a small, very quiet town said to be under some kind of enchantment. A tall, good-looking man who is very strong and known in the town for his heroic nature. For some time, the conflict between these two men continues with wins on both sides. Brom tells his own story of encountering the Headless Horseman.

    Besides, there is no encouragement for ghosts in most of our villages, for they have scarce had Legend Of Sleepy Hollow book to finish their first nap, and turn themselves in their graves, before their surviving friends have traveled away from the neighborhood, so that when they turn out of a night to walk the rounds, they have no acquaintance left to call upon. The schoolmaster attempts to dodge, but is too late; the horticultural missile strikes his head and sends him tumbling headlong into the dust. He does, but as he does the specter stands on his stirrups and launches his head at Ichabod. What passed at this interview I will not pretend to say, for in fact, I do not know. Ichabod keeps very few possessions and does his best to be useful in the homes that he stays in, often helping on farms and always being agreeable. Some seem to have but one vulnerable point, or door of access; while others have a thousand avenues, and may be captured in a thousand different ways.

    It works, and Ichabod has never seen in the town again. He has no qualms about ending his workday early to go to the party at the Van Tassel farm. In the postscript, Knickerbocker claims that he heard this story at a business meeting in New York. Ichabod, tall and lanky with a voracious appetite, is stern and strict in the schoolhouse but can be shrewd and ingratiating when it suits him, such as at the farmhouses of the students where he lodges. Ichabod is a strict teacher but not a cruel one, doling out his punishment of the rod only to those who can handle it.

It was during this period that he wrote several historical works. After having failed to secure Katrina's hand, Ichabod rides home on his temperamental horse named Gunpowder "heavy-hearted and crestfallen" through the woods between Van Tassel's farmstead and the farmhouse in Sleepy Hollow where he is quartered at the time.

He does not watch Katrina as closely as he perhaps ought to. Because of his interest in this book Ichabod considers himself a firm believer in the supernatural.

Among them, a man named Brom Van Brunt is the largest threat to Ichabod. He is very tall and thin, with the large appetite and a greedy personality. He went to private schools and studied law. This name was given, we are told, in former days, by the good housewives of the adjacent country, from the inveterate propensity of their husbands to linger Legend Of Sleepy Hollow book the village tavern on market days.

He is an excellent dancer, a scholar and one of the smartest men in town. He is especially interested in ghost stories Legend Of Sleepy Hollow book the supernatural, because he believes in it. Ichabod comes to Sleepy Hollow, Legend Of Sleepy Hollow book York, from his home state of Connecticut, to be the schoolmaster of the village.

The "Legend" relates the tale of Ichabod Cranea lean, lanky and extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt, the town rowdy, for the hand of year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of wealthy farmer Baltus Van Tassel.

Sleepy Hollow is a strange little place When the two go through a patch of moonlight, Ichabod realizes that the horseman is headless.

Baltus is content on his farm if perhaps a little naive. In one corner stood a huge bag of wool, ready to be spun; in another, a quantity of linsey-woolsey just from the loom; ears of Indian corn, and strings of dried apples and peaches, hung in gay festoons along the walls, mingled with the gaud of red peppers; and a door left ajar gave him a peep into the best parlor, where the claw-footed chairs and dark mahogany tables shone like mirrors; andirons, with their accompanying shovel and tongs, glistened from their covert of asparagus tops; mock oranges and conch shells decorated the mantelpiece; strings of various-colored birds eggs were suspended above it; a great ostrich egg was hung from the centre of the room, and a corner cupboard, knowingly left open, displayed immense treasures of old silver and well-mended china.

Ichabod eats everything in sight at the dinner and dances much of the night away with Katrina. He does, but as he does the specter stands on his stirrups and launches his head at Ichabod.

Benches were built along the sides for summer use; and a great spinning-wheel at one end, and a churn at the other, showed the various uses to which this important porch might be devoted.

One of their favorites is of the Headless Horseman, an old Hessian trooper whose head was shot off during the Revolutionary War, and who gallops off in search of it each night. The figure, a large horseman, suddenly springs into motion. Ichabod is greatly disturbed and tries to shake off his pursuer, but he fails.

They approach the church and Ichabod recalls that the horseman is supposed to vanish at this point from the tales that he has heard.

He is mischievous, but he is often motivated by goodwill. The horse, named Gunpowder, is aged and somewhat sickly but still tough and ready for a fight. Mostly inhabited by descendants from Dutch settlers, the residents are known for their belief in superstitions and the supernatural, and have many stories to suffice their colorful imaginations.

Late into the night, the party disbands. Frightened, he calls out to ask who it is. His attempt to woo Katrina Van Tassel fails just before he meets the headless horseman, who is most likely Ichabod's primary competition in disguise.“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is a short story that was published in by American author Washington Irving.
