Jesse Cornett brings to this life the tale "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," as written in the late 19th century by American author Ambrose Bierce (1842--1913). Originally published by The San Francisco Examiner in 1890, it was first collected in Bierce's 1891 book Tales of Soldiers and Civilians. The story, which is set during the Civil War, is famous for its irregular time sequence and twist ending. It is Bierce's most anthologized story. It is the story of one Peyton Farquhar, a Confederate sympathizer condemned to death by hanging from Owl Creek Bridge. At the beginning of the story, the protagonist stands bound at the bridge's edge. Read (and listen!) on to discover just what is so unusual about the occurrence at the Bridge.
