Ambrose Gwinett Bierce, (1842-1914?), was an American journalist and author, born in Meigs County, Ohio, and self-educated. He served with distinction in the Union army during the Civil War, and was brevetted major. In 1872 Ambrose Bierce went to London, where he contributed ironic fables to the periodical Fun; these and several other works, notable for their sardonic, cynical wit, won him the nickname "Bitter Bierce". Returning to the U.S. in 1876, he contributed to the periodical Overland Monthly and for manyyears to the "Prattler Columns" of the newspaper San Francisco Examiner. Ambrose Bierce edited the periodicals Argonaut and The Wasp in California from 1877 to 1884. In 1913, at the age of seventy-one, Ambrose Bierce went to Mexico and disappeared soon afterward.
