An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge is a short story by Ambrose Bierce. It was written in 1886, but first published in the 1891 collection "Tales of Soldiers and Civilians". The story is set in northern Alabama during the American Civil War, and is about Peyton Farquhar, a Confederate sympathizer sentenced to death by hanging at Owl Creek Bridge, because he tried to burn down the bridge before Union soldiers got a chance to cross it.

Is there really an Owl Creek in north Alabama? Yes there is, it is apparently in Bankhead National Forest, North Alabama. I don't know if it is the same Owl Creek, as the story's main character, Peyton Farquhar, had a plantation about 30 miles from the Owl Creek bridge - which would be somewhat isolated in forest.
