The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

We've all heard the story of Ichabod Crane and Headless Horseman in the legend of Sleepy Hollow, but just in case you need a refresher here's a little recap.  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a short story written by Washington Irving in the early 1800s.  The gist of the story follows Ichabod Crane who is a school teacher that seems to be haunted by the ghost of the Headless Horseman. Since the Headless Horseman has no head, he's looking for a head to take.  Ichabod Crane has a run-in with the Headless Horseman and is never seen in Sleepy Hollow again.
