Examples include the dullahan from Ireland, who is a demonic fairy usually depicted riding a horse and carrying his head under his arm, the titular knight from the English tale Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, ' a short story written in 1820 by American Washington Irving, which has been adapted into several other works of literature and film including the 1949 Disney cartoon 'The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad' and the 1999 Tim Burton film Sleepy Hollow. = In American folklore =The Headless Horseman is a fictional character from the 1820 short story 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' by American author Washington Irving. The story, from Irving's collection of short stories entitled The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., has worked itself into known American folklore/legend through literature and film, including the 1999 Tim Burton film Sleepy Hollow. The legend of the Headless Horseman (also known as 'the Headless Hessian of the Hollow') begins in Sleepy Hollow, New York, during the American Revolutionary War. Traditional folklore holds that the Horseman was a Hessian trooper who was killed during the Battle of White Plains in 1776. He was decapitated by an American cannonball, and the shattered remains of his head were left on the battlefield while his comrades hastily carried his body away. Eventually they buried him in the cemetery of the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, from which he rises as a malevolent ghost, furiously seeking his lost head and wielding a Jack-o'-Lantern as a temporary replacement and/or weapon.
