In the middle of the 19th century,  Washington Irving was the most popular man in America. He was the first American to make a living as a professional writer. Although he wrote essays, biographies, articles and satire, his two sketches "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" continue to cast a spell on audiences today. Taped on location in the Hudson Valley where the story is set, this new production uses historical reenactments to celebrate and bring to life Washington Irving's most beloved tale of Ichabod Crane and the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow.
