Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842 – 1914?) was an American satirist, critic, poet, editor and journalist. Bierce became a prolific author of short stories often humorous and sometimes bitter or macabre. He spoke out against oppression and supported civil and religious freedoms. A Civil War veteran, Bierce had absolutely no illusions about "courage," "honor," and "glory" on the battlefield. He is also noted for his tales of the Civil War, which drew on his own experience as a Union cartographer and officer. He also wrote numerous Civil War stories from first-hand experience of being gravely wounded in the Civil War.
