This book includes, "Sleepy Hollow," an essay by Washington Irving, and "Washington at Tarrytown," an essay by Marcius D. Raymond. The father of American letters, Washington Irving, writes about the real SLEEPY HOLLOW of his youth. Henry John Steiner, the village historian of Sleepy Hollow and the editor of this book, brings us two little-know works relating to the history of a fabled American place. "Sleepy Hollow" ((1839) is an essay written by Washington Irving forty years after his first visit to Sleepy Hollow in his boyhood days. This beautifully written piece provides us with the "backstory" of Irving's famous, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1819). He describes his enchantment with the place that now enchants the lovers of his story. "Washington at Tarrytown" is a period gem written by local historian and newspaperman, M. D. Raymond. It is full of details relating to George Washington's visits to Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown at the time of the American Revolution.
