In American Forklore the Headless Horseman was originally known as the Headless Hessian of the Hollow. During the battle of White Plains at Merritt Hill the Hessian trooper was decapitated by a cannonball. He was buried in the old dutch church of Sleepy Hollow, and legend has it that he would rise as a vengeful ghost in search for his lost head. The reason this tale is often associated with Halloween and why his head is sometimes depicted as a pumpkin is because the battle took place on the 28th of October 1776, a few days before Halloween.

This is from our October 2019 Tee Party.

Our shirts run a little small and are athletic fit so if you are in between sizes or are unsure, please order up one size.

About 1776 United

We created 1776 United to evoke a sense of patriotism found in our forefathers. Most have forgotten to ask themselves not what their country can do for them, but what they can do for their country.

Our dream is to inspire a new wave of patriotism that might lead to the next Greatest Generation. We aim for the clothing we create to embody the many chapters of American history. Each shirt is a cotton reminder of who we are, where we live, and where we're going.
