Owl Creek Bridge: An Occurrence
Publisher: Simply Magazine
Date: March 2012
Duration: 0 hours 27 minutes
Considered one of the great American short stories; Kurt Vonnegut said it was the best. Set in the Civil War with a Southwestern humor twist worthy of Mark Twain, but much grimmer. The story of betrayal as a Northern Scout in the Civil War lures a planter to blow up a bridge so he can be caught and hanged. Short, concise, worthy.
