It really didn’t work for me – I found it too over-the-top and contrived. Refresh and try again.
Chickamauga by Ambrose Bierce
Suddenly he realizes that what is burning around him is his own home, which was hit by a shell, and he xmbrose the mutilated corpse of his mother in the grass. Empathy for the boy and soldiers? To say more would spoil it.
Just a lost child, a deafening silence, footprints and ghost-like apparitions. May 10, Bradley rated it really liked it Shelves:
