Ambrose Bierce actually fought in the Civil War. Known as the “Devil’s Lexicographer”, he was known for his sharp wit and biting satire. He wrote several stories set during the Civil War, and also delved into the ghost story genre with great success. H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen Crane, among others, were influenced by his work. He was last known to join Pancho Villa’s revolutionary army as an observer in October 1913. He was never heard from again.  

And now, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, and A Horseman in the Sky, by Ambrose Bierce.
