Ambrose Bierce could write these stories with authority, because he fought as a Union soldier during the War for Southern Independence. Bierce fought bravely and was highly decorated for his heroism. His stories always surprise the reader. Included in this volume are the best of his war stories. These stories include "What I Saw of Shiloh," "Four Days in Dixie," "A Horseman in the Sky," "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," "Chickamauga," "A Son of the Gods," "One of the Missing," "Killed at Resaca," "The Affair at Coulter's Notch," "The Coup de Grace," "Parker Adderson, Philosopher," "An Affair of Outposts," "The Story of a Conscience," "One Kind of Officer," "George Thurston," and "The Mocking-bird." Later in life, Bierce visited many of the battlefields upon which he had fought, and then reportedly went to Mexico, never to be heard from again.
