I first saw the short film for this short story in my 12th grade English class with one of my favorite teachers ever. Ambrose Bierce is his favorite author, and he begged begged begged us to read this short story in our free time.

And I'm so glad he did. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge tells the tale of a man who is about to be hanged. I'll spoil if I say more, I kid you not, but I really want everyone to read this. It's brilliance. Ambrose Bierce is a damn genius.

This is up there with The Cask of Amontillado and All Summer in a Day for me. What a great story.
