There was a legend called "The Headless Horseman". It was about a soldier that died of a headshot by a British in the American Independence war. The legend says that he is looking for his head.
The schoolmaster of Sleepy Hollow was a man named Ichabod Crane. He was very tall and thin, with narrow shoulders and long arms and legs. His head was small, and very flat on the top. He had huge ears, large green eyes and very long nose.
One day a new pupil joined Ichabod's group of psalm singers. Her named was Katrina Van Tassel, and she was the daughter of Baltus Van Tassel, and old farmer. She was eighteen years old and she was very beautiful. She had blond hair and she liked wearing pretty clothes. Ichabod fell in love with her and also with her money.
A Terrible Race
Brom Bones was very handsome, muscular, and a talented writer. He was in love with Katrina as well as Ichabod, and he was very confident that he could win Katrina's heart.
Ichabod started dancing with Katrina. Everybody began to laugh at him. Brom Bones didn't danced and he stared at Katrina angrily. Later Ichabod became tired and he joined a group of people and then Brom Bones began to tell stories to scared Ichabod.
It was almost midnight and Ichabod saw a horseman so he try to go another way but then the horseman follow him and then he run faster until he saw a church and the cross it because the horseman couldn't cross it.
