PIERRE GUSTAVE TOUTAND de BEAUREGARD
Autograph Document Signed, G.T.B., three lines at the conclusion of a List of Personal & General Staff, legal folio, December 8, 1862. In pencil.
Beauregard writes: "I think it is time to publish names of my staff I recollect. Do you think ítis well to book Walkerís & Manningís names down now? & Polignacís" The list, written in an unidentified hand, comprises names of the generalís aides, voluntary aides, members of the adjutant generalís department, inspector generalís department, medical department and others.
Beauregard assumed command at Shiloh after the death of General Albert Sidney Johnston in early 1862. He turned over his command temporarily, he thought, to Bragg in June when he went on sick leave. Jefferson Davis, however, relieved him on the charge of leaving his post without authority. Upon his recovery he returned to Charleston in command of the defenses of the Carolina and Georgia coasts, and toward the end of thewar defended the southern approaches to Richmond. Matted in cream and light blue, with a bust-length portrait engraving of General Beauregard. Framed in antiqued gilt, framed dimensions are 21 inches wide by 18 inches high
