dc.description.abstractThe Hudson Valley is an area of one hundred and fifty miles that encompasses a large section of New York State, from Albany to downstate New York. Over the last few centuries the Hudson Valley area has become to many a very haunted place. These hauntings are seen through various literary sources, local stories, and folklore. The hauntings of this area have been said to influence such early American short stories as The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. Not only do the atrocities against Native Americans linger in the minds of Americans and the literature written by early American authors, but cause feelings of regret that keep the ghosts in style.eng
