Even though Stephen Crane attended both Lafayette College and Syracuse University, he never actually earned a degree in his short life. He started off as a journalist and free-lance writer but soon turned to writing his own novels. His most famous work, the Civil War-inspired The Red Badge of Courage, has been read by millions and lauded as one of the great American novels. Although Crane never served in battle himself, he studied extensively and interviewed many war veterans before writing Courage. In 1897, he was shipped to Cuba on a writing assignment and was shipwrecked near Florida. While there, he met his future wife, and together they served as war correspondents in the Greco-Turkish War of 1897. Crane ultimately used the experience to write Active Service, one of his last novels.
