"Rebel: Loreta Velazquez, Secret Soldier" shows on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 1 and 3 p.m.

In 1861, a teenager from New Orleans known as Harry T. Buford headed to the front lines. He fought at First Bull Run, was wounded at Shiloh, and served as a confederate spy. But Buford harbored a secret: He was really Loreta Velazquez, who later scandalized America when she revealed her story.
