The Woman in Battle

ByLoreta J. Velazquez

Loreta Velazquez grew up wanting to be the next Joan of Arc. When her husband joined the Confederate Army as a surgeon, she disguised herself as a man, obtained a commission as a First Lieutenant and joined her husband's regiment. The disguise even fooled him! This is one of the most amazing tales of the War Between the States. Spellbinding and well told narrative seeded with plenty of racy scenes where her real gender is nearly discovered (or really is!!!) and love letters from the "ladies at home" who were likewise fooled keeps you wanting to read more. As the orginal text says, "Profusely illustrated," with pictures from the original.
