Description
In 1861, at the outbreak of the Civil War, a teenager from New Orleans headed to the front lines. Under the alias Harry T. Buford, he fought at First Bull Run, was wounded at Shiloh, and served as a Confederate spy. By 1863 he was working for the Union, but Buford harbored an even greater secret—he was in reality Loreta Velázquez, a female Cuban immigrant. Her 1876 memoir, The Woman in Battle, caused a scandal, and she was attacked for her criticism of war and for her sexuality. Her story was eventually dismissed as a hoax. But evidence confirms she existed, one of more than a thousand women soldiers in the Civil War. Actors and historians bring Velázquez's story to life in this 2013 PBS documentary, weaving drama and animation with archival material to unravel the mystery of this secret soldier. The DVD includes a making-of featurette.
