Legends of Sleepy Hollow presentation to take place Nov. 15 at Milton Public Library
On Tuesday evening, 11/15, at 7:00 p.m. virtually, author and folklorist Christopher Rondina will talk about his book called: Legends of Sleepy Hollow: The Lost History of the Headless Horseman (Ghostboy Press, c2019). Mr. Rondina has a passion for tales of ghosts, witches, and the unknown. His book explores the fascinating lore and reality behind the Hudson Valley’s most famous phantom. On November lst, 1776, in the early morning hours after a stormy Halloween night, a British force attacked a small American encampment outside White Plains. Most of the attackers were driven back, but one soldier never left the battlefield.
Come join us to learn more about a real, documented “Headless Hessian” who died on All Hallows Day, just a short gallop from Sleepy Hollow. Please join this interesting author to hear the riveting true story in this fascinating talk! Advance registration is required at our website to receive the Zoom link.
