As students head back to school this week, we are featuring free eBook classics as part of our Free eBook of the Day feature. Today’s Free eBook of the Day is The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane.

This 1895 war novel depicts the hardships of the American Civil War. Here is an excerpt: “Once a certain tall soldier developed virtues and went resolutely to wash a shirt. He came flying back from a brook waving his garment bannerlike. He was swelled with a tale he had heard from a reliable friend, who had heard it from a truthful cavalryman, who had heard it from his trustworthy brother, one of the orderlies at division headquarters. He adopted the important air of a herald in red and gold.”

Project Gutenberg has the free download.
