Peyton Farquhar, a confederate sympathizer, stands to be hanged for his role in a plot to demolish Owl Creek Bridge. As he awaits death, Farquhar considers the possibility of escapeâ??the chances of slipping his bonds, swimming to safety, and returning to his family. â??An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridgeâ? recounts the final moments before Farquhar is hanged, exploring the feelings of a man facing his death, and the close relationship between life and death.
