One of America’s oldest short stories
The residents of Sleepy Hollow believed the Headless Horseman to have been a Hessian. The Hessians were soldiers from Northern Germany who were rented from German princes to fight for the British in the Revolutionary War. Although six German princes rented out their troops to the British, the Hessians, from Hesse-Kassel, were the most numerous and most important, making up about 17,000 of the 30,000 total troops sent.
