Brigadier general of the Confederate Provisional Army (1818–1893) who commanded the forces at Charleston, where he ordered the bombardment of Fort Sumter at the start of the conflict. Manuscript DS, signed in pencil, “G. T. B.,” one page, 8 x 11.75, notated December 8, 1862. A list in another hand headed “List of Personal & General Staff,” with a statement lightly written in pencil by Beauregard at the conclusion, in full: “I think it is time to publish the names of my staff I recollect. Do you think it is well to book Walker’s and Manning’s names down now? & Polignac’s?” The list includes names of members of the adjutant general’s department, inspector general’s department, and medical department, as well as some other aides and officers. Double-matted and framed with an engraved portrait to an overall size of 21 x 18. In very good condition, with edge separations to horizontal folds, tears and paper loss to edges, and Beauregard’s statement struck through in ink. Beauregard assumed command of his regiment at Shiloh after the death of Albert Sidney Johnston, but in the spring of 1862 Jefferson Davis permanently replaced him with Braxton Bragg after Beauregard took an unauthorized medical leave. Beauregard then returned to Charleston, where he protected the harbor from repeated naval and land attacks by Union forces during 1863. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
