Poems by Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)

Bierce was born at Horse Cave Creek in Meigs County, Ohio. At the outset of the American Civil War, Bierce enlisted in the Union Army's 9th Indiana Infantry Regiment. In October 1913 Bierce departed for a tour of his old Civil War battlefields. After a last letter to Blanche Partington, a close friend, dated December 26, 1913, he vanished without a trace, becoming one of the most famous disappearances in American literary history.
