In 1820 ,Washington Irving a writer wrote the book "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow " based on theses events ,proven neither true nor otherwise .Only in recent years  has the Headless Horseman made two appearances ,once when  three investment brokers planned to use the Sleepy Hollow legend against each other but were surprised when the real Headless Horseman appeared .The second when a corrupt Buisnessman and some of  his associates  used the Headless Horseman to try and kill a police officer .The original again appeared and gave them all  heart attacks .
In 1999 Sleepy Hollow  was a period horror film directed by Tim Burton. The Hessian was played by actor Christopher Walken .
