Perhaps no writer who fought in the American Civil War left as eloquent, humorous, and sorrowful a record of the soldier's life as did famous writer, Ambrose Bierce. As he states, this account of several battles in which he was an officer centers around his person and observations. But what an observer! Written nearly 50 years after the war, Bierce captures the horror, confusion, disastrous mistakes, and humor of the war from ground level. He was a soldier at Shiloh, Franklin, and at many other battles of the Civil War. Seriously wounded in the head at Kennesaw Mountain he was out of action for several months but returned to service. Late in his life, Bierce disappeared without a trace in Mexico. The mystery of his disappearance has never been solved.
