Ambrose Bierce is most widely known for his short story “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” which features (no spoilers) a fantastic twist ending.

But the author’s own personal ending is even more fascinating, because no one knows what it was.

Bierce was a seventy-one-year-old journalist when he decided to join Pancho Villa’s army as an observer — a project during which he disappeared and was never heard from again.

Literary Hub’s Dan Sheehan rounds up five theories on what happened to Bierce, in honor of what would have been (or could still be) his 179th birthday.
