Loreta Janeta Vel?zquez (June 26, 1842 - c.1902), was a Cuban-born woman who claimed that she masqueraded as a male Confederate soldier during the American Civil War. According to her memoirs, she enlisted in the Confederate States Army in 1861, without her soldier-husband's knowledge. She then supposedly fought at Bull Run, Ball's Bluff and Fort Donelson, but was discharged when her gender was discovered while in New Orleans. Undeterred, she apparently reenlisted and fought at Shiloh, until unmasked once more. She then became a Confederate spy, working in both male and female guises, supposedly as a double agent also reporting to the U.S. Secret Service. Her husband died during the war and she remarried three more times; being widowed in each instance. The circumstances of her own death are unknown. History Channel presented a documentary on Velazquez in 2007 titled "Full Metal Corset" and there was a short (73 minute) film titled "Rebel" in 20013. N° de ref. de la librería
