What does The Legend of Sleepy Hollow show about America?

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow takes unique place at a time in American history. Research about what it was like to live in America during this time. You may find that some history sources only talk about famous people and events, but not common people. Keep searching! [Hint: See what life on a farm was like at this time. Or, what life in New York City was like at this time.]

The setting of this book is a great illustration of what it was like to live day to day in America at this time. Write a five-paragraph essay that describes three ways that the setting of this book describes aspects of day-to-day living in America during this time.

Be sure to include:

  • Five paragraphs
  • Three quotes fromĀ The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
  • Citations for any other resources you used
