For a complete summary of the plot, simply follow the link provded below.

As for the conflict, Ichabod is a nerdy, for that time, school master who moves to Sleepy Hollow from Connecticut. Ichabod is a bachelor but becomes infatuated with one of his music students, the young lady Katrina Van Tassel. Ichabod vies for her affections against another suitor named Brom Van Brunt. Much of the conflict involves Brom humiliating Ichabod; it was kind of like the mean jock picking on the skinny nerdy guy in high school. Thrown into the mix is the legend of some guy who got his head blown off by cannon during the Revolutionary War. Apparently, he rides around at night and is known as the Headless Horseman.
