The former Confederate General at this time was involved in several projects: he was the President of the New Orleans, Jackson & Mississippi Railway; Manager of the Louisiana lottery; in 1888, he became Commissioner of Public Works for the City of New Orleans and served as Adjutant-General of Louisiana. A former West Point graduate, Beauregard was Superintendent of that college for less than a week when he declared his intent to follow his native Louisiana should it secede. He resigned his Captain's commission in February of 1861 to become Brigadier General in the CSA. On April 2, he gave the order for firing on Fort Sumter, beginning the Civil War. He took command of the Army of Tennessee when General A.S. Johnston was mortally wounded at Shiloh. He was known as a great military strategist and one of the best Generals in the CSA.
