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.
