At the outset of the American Civil War, Loreta Janeta Velazquez, an educated Cuban born teenager, fought as an officer in the battle of First Bull Run, was wounded at Shiloh, and served as a secret agent for the Confederacy. By 1863, Velazquez was spying for the Union. She chafed against the gender and race restrictions of her time, and her 1876 memoir, A Woman in Battle, caused a sensation.

Fascinating Story!

Comments about PBS Rebel: Loreta Velazquez, Secret Soldier of the American Civil War DVD:

This film takes you back in time to see how the amazing life of Loreta Velazquez unfolds in relation to the Civil War. This really brings the time period to life. Through her story and the questions it leaves us with, the documentary encourages us viewers to ponder how and why parts of her story were/are contested, and to think about how history gets written. I loved this video and recommend it most highly!

Comments about PBS Rebel: Loreta Velazquez, Secret Soldier of the American Civil War DVD:

This is just an incredible story that should be seen by all American school children as well as adults. In my opinion, Civil War buffs would enjoy this film immensely. The director of this documentary did an outstanding job as far as guiding the actors to reenact this time period and series of events. The setting and costumes were very authentic. It is also evident that a tremendous amount of research was done to portray Loreta Janeta Velazquez's story in a historically accurate light. I highly recommend this documentary.

Comments about PBS Rebel: Loreta Velazquez, Secret Soldier of the American Civil War DVD:

ReBel is a fascinating and provocative feature documentary about Loreta Janeta Velazquez, Civil War soldier and spy. She cross-dressed and fought for the Confederacy. Nuanced, timely, beautiful performance by Isabel Carter as the young Loreta.
