PIERRE G.T. BEAUREGARD
Small sepia publicity Carte Visite photograph of Pierre G. T. Beauregard who was in command of the bombardment of Fort Sumter.
Carte de Visite Photograph signed: "G.T. Beauregard/1866". Sepia, 2½x4 overall, image 2x3¾ (two surfaces). Photographer's imprint on verso: "S. Anderson/Photographer/61 Camp St. New Orleans". Beauregard was appointed Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in January 1861, but was reassigned less than a week later following his declaration that, should Louisiana secede, he would follow her. Louisiana seceded on January 26, 1861, and Beauregard resigned his U.S. Army commission to become a Brigadier General in the Confederate Army. He was in command at the bombardment of Fort Sumter, giving the order to fire on April 12, 1861, beginning the Civil War. At 1st Manassas (1st Bull Run), Beauregard had his horse shot out from under him, but gave the Confederacy its first victory. He took command at Shiloh (Pittsburg Landing) in Tennessee when General Albert Johnston was killed. After the Civil War, Beauregard was President of the New Orleans, Jackson & Mississippi Railway, Adjutant-General of Louisiana and manager of the Louisiana state lottery. Lightly soiled. Lightly stained at blank bottom border. Overall, fine condition..
