Meet the Author

Stephen Crane was born November 1, 1871 and raised mostly by his siblings in New Jersey. He was an American novelist, poet and journalist. After attending various colleges, he traveled to New York to work as a reporter. Stephen became a highly paid war correspondent writing for William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. He wrote numerous short stories, poems and accounts of war, but none gave him the acclaim that The Red Badge of Courage did, written in 1895. During the last year of his life he took refuge in the south of England. Plagued by exhaustion and ill health, he died on June 5, 1900 at the age of 28.

Read an Excerpt

The cold left the ground and the fog lifted. On the hills, the Union army rested and waited. A river moved by the army's feet. In the day, the river looked yellow. At night, the river was black. Across the dark stream, one could see the red light of angry Confederate campfires on the far-off hills. This morning the men were moved by some xciting words. A tall soldier had gone down to the river to wash his shirt. While there, Jim made a discovery. He said the men were going to move into battle very soon. Some of the soldiers did not believe Jim. They talked loudly among themselves. A young private looked on. He listened with eager ears. When he became tired of their talk, he went back to his hut. There he lay quietly in his bunk, thinking. Henry had joined the army at an early age. His mind had made pictures of the battles and fighting men of the Civil War. He longed to see it all. The young man believed he could honor his family and friends by becoming a soldier. His mother hadn't liked the idea. She wanted her boy to stay at home and work on the farm. But one day, Henry had gone and written his name on the list of men who were going to fight.
