City of Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum says
Shrouded in mystery and long the subject of debate, the amazing story of Loreta Velazquez, Confederate soldier turned Union Spy, is one of the Civil War's most gripping forgotten narratives. While the U.S. military may have recently lifted the ban on women in combat, Loreta Janeta Velazquez, a Cuban immigrant from New Orleans, was fighting in battle 150 years ago - one of an estimated 1000 women who secretly served as soldiers during the American Civil War. Who was she? Why did she fight? And what made her so dangerous she has been virtually erased from history? Directed by MarĂ­a Agui Carter, REBEL is the story of a woman, a myth, and the politics of national memory. After the film, Ms. Carter will lead a conversation with the audience.
