Meantime we swap jack-knives SO, basically, I have two days to write five essays on Ambrose Bierce. Right now I am working on one that is going to be comparing the Setting of "Chickamauga" and "The Horseman in the Sky" and I am haveing trouble getting started. I suppose and help on how they may be similar and different will help. I am looking for thoughts that maybe I have not picked up on, so anything will be helpful.
Thanks for any help you may give I don't fully understand the end of the story. Does the Protagonist die by a shot or is it just his imagination after being hung? And without discussing it, we have a test tomorrow. For the test, we have to draw a picture of the setting including the notch, the road, the ridge, the yankee troops, the rebel troops, the ochard and the cannons. I am trying to figure it out on my own, but if I do not figure this out, I will fail the test.
