    The school-house being deserted, soon fell to decay, and was reported to be haunted by the ghost of the unfortunate pedagogue; and the ploughboy, loitering homeward of a still summer evening, has often fancied his voice at a distance, chanting a melancholy psalm tune among the tranquil solitudes of Sleepy Hollow. It was one of those spacious farmhouses, with high-ridged, but lowly-sloping roofs, built in the style handed down from the first Dutch settlers; the low projecting eaves forming a piazza along the front, capable of being closed up in bad weather. However, this only spooks his horse and Gunpowder accidentally veers in the wrong direction from Sleepy Hollow — toward the old church. Its limbs were gnarled, and fantastic, large enough to form trunks for ordinary trees, twisting down almost to the earth, and rising again into the air.

    Nicholas when they crossed, there lies a small market-town or rural port, which by some is called Greensburgh, but which is more generally and properly known by the name of Tarry Town. But he also seems to love her as well. Katrina is an insatiable flirt and enjoys the men seeking her attention greatly. If ever I should wish for a retreat, whither I might steal from the world and its distractions, and dream quietly away the remnant of a troubled life, I know of none more promising than this little valley.

    Both stories are often paired together in books and other representations, and both are included in surveys of early American literature and Romanticism. Tompkinsmet an army captain named Ichabod Crane in Sackets Harbor, New York during an inspection tour of fortifications in The book was popular in the United States and in Europe and would have editions published before the end of the century. Hans Van Ripper now began to feel some uneasiness about the fate of poor Ichabod, and his saddle.

Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle book

The next day, Gunpowder shows up back home at the Van Ripper farm. Author to achieve international renown. But I am planting this not for myself, but for the other generations to come after me and the generations to follow those.

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. Niamh lends him her horse, warning him never to dismount, and he travels back to Ireland.

It tells of a goatherd named Peter Klaus who goes looking for a lost goat. Buxom lasses, almost as antiquated as their mothers, excepting where a straw hat, a fine ribbon, or perhaps a white frock, gave symptoms of city innovation.

Washington was born on April 3,[1] the same week that New York City residents learned of the British ceasefire which ended the American Revolution.

The stranger, however, quickened his horse to an equal pace. The Headless Horseman of the movie is a real ghost, under the control of Katrina Van Tassel's revenge-seeking step-mother.

On that side of the road where the brook entered the wood, a group of oaks and chestnuts, matted thick with wild grapevines, threw a cavernous gloom over it. When the two go through a patch of moonlight, Ichabod realizes that the horseman is headless.

His heart began to sink within him; he endeavored to resume his psalm tune, but his parched tongue clove to the roof of his mouth, and he could not utter a stave. Aaron Burr was a co-publisher of the Chronicle, and was impressed enough to send clippings of the Oldstyle pieces to his daughter Theodosia.

He made no offer of molestation or sociability, but kept aloof on one side of the road, jogging along on the blind side of old Gunpowder, who had now got over his fright and waywardness. The next morning, Ichabod has mysteriously disappeared from the area, leaving Katrina to later marry Brom Bones, who was said "to look exceedingly knowing whenever the story of Ichabod was related".

One autumn day, Van Winkle wanders into the mountains with his dog Wolf to escape his wife's nagging.

The Headless Horseman is brought up, among other local legends. James's in London, to assist in negotiating the Anglo-American disagreement over the Oregon border that newly elected president James K.

His instrument was as old and battered as himself. He found favor in the eyes of the mothers, by petting the children, particularly the youngest; and like the lion bold, which whilom so magnanimously the lamb did hold, he would sit with a child on one knee, and rock a cradle with his foot for whole hours together.

Nicholas when they crossed, there lies a small market-town or rural port, which by some is called Greensburgh, but which is more generally and properly known by the name of Tarry Town. Frightened, he calls out to ask who it is. It knocks Ichabod off of his horse.

He was, moreover, approaching the very place where many of the scenes of the ghost stories had been laid. To me they have always been matters of riddle and admiration. It stirred not, but seemed gathered up in the gloom, like some gigantic monster ready to spring upon the traveller.

Not a limb, not a fibre about him was idle; and to have seen his loosely hung frame in full motion, and clattering about the room, you would have thought Saint Vitus himself, that blessed patron of the dance, was figuring before you in person.

With these he lived successively a week at a time; thus going the rounds of the neighborhood, with all his worldly effects tied up in a cotton handkerchief.
