In Search of Ambrosio Gonzales: A Soldier Under Two Flags



This documentary is about an extraordinary self-styled conspirator, freedom-fighter, Cuban patriot and Confederate Colonel, Ambrosio Jose Gonzales. During his lifetime, Gonzales would forge friendships and crucial political alliances with such legends as General PGT Beauregard, SC Senator John C. Calhoun and Mississippi governor John Quitman. Gonzales would use these relationships to advance his dual missions: Cuban independence from Spanish rule and victory for the Confederate States Army. In pursuing his quests, Gonzales’s fortunes would cross paths with that of both General Robert E. Lee and CSA president Jefferson Davis.

Encore broadcast Oct 12 on the South Carolina Channel. Premiered on Oct. 8 at 10 p.m.
