Summary
This is the amazing true story of a nineteenth century Canadian girl who ran away from home disguised as a travelling Bible salesman and served in the American Civil War as a nurse, dispatch carrier and spy. From the peacefulness of her homeland to the frenzy of war, the film follows the struggles of Emma Edmonds through visually stunning footage, some of which was shot at actual Civil War sites in Virginia. This intimate portrait uses the heroine s own words read by renowned actress Anne-Marie MacDonald. Officially denied for decades, startling new research has revealed documented evidence of over 250 cases of women dressed as men in the Confederate and Union ranks. Taking into account others who were killed or buried in their male guise or who chose to remain anonymous, the real number, which will never be known, is much higher
