Headless Horseman Rides again at Bishop McDevitt

First published in 1820 by American author Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has ever since been a popular tale of haunted mystery and human intrigue. Set the along the Hudson River in Tarrytown, N.Y., “this sequestered glen has long been known by the name of Sleepy Hollow,” Irving wrote. “A drowsy, dreamy influence seems to hang over the land and to pervade the very atmosphere.”

Add a haughty, superstitious school master named Ichabod Crane, a wealthy, pretentious Katrina Van Tassel and a fearsome soldier-ghost dubbed by locals as the Headless Horseman, and the makings of a great drama come alive.
