An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge
By: Jack True
Farquhar is standing on top of the bridge with his hands tied behind his back with rope and his neck tied with a slip knot that is tied to a beam above his head with two Union Soldiers aiming guns at him.
Farquhar has a vision of himself escaping the rope and the Union Soldiers. He sees himself going back to the safety of his house which is outside of enemy lines.
Farquhar breaks free of the rope and dives into the water. He franticly swims toward the shore trying to avoid the gun shots from above.
He makes it to the shore while crying with joy only to be surrounded by a bright white light. He realized that the vision was only that, a vision. He is dead.
An ordinary planter who was part of an esteemed family in Alabama. He was a slave owner and also a proud confederate.
A good woman who serves as a role model for Farquhar but also is not enough to stop Farquhar from trying to burn down a bridge which ultimately gets him executed.
This man was disguised as a confederate soldier to try to spark Farquhar's sabotage i burning down the bridge. He was the cause of Farquhar's execution.
