Presentation Transcript

  • Peyton Farquhar is a southern slave owner with Confederate sympathies, but is unable to enlist in the Confederate Army although he really wants to fight.

  • A Confederate soldier stops by Farquhar’s house one day for water and tells him about the Union Army at Owl Creek Bridge and how they are rebuilding the railroads. The Union Army threatens to hang anyone who interferes with its progress.

  • He swims to the surface and finds that his senses seem very acute.

  • The soldiers begin to shoot at him.

  • Farquhar begins to swim with the current and gets caught in a whirlpool which throws him onto the bank.

  • He makes it back home to his wife, but as he is about to embrace her, the reader learns that the entire escape was a fantasy and Farquhar dies.
