Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard (May 28, 1818 – February 20, 1893) was a Confederate general officer who started the American Civil War by leading the attack on Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861.

Trained in military and civil engineering at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, Beauregard served with distinction as an engineer officer in the Mexican–American War. After Louisiana seceded in 1861, he resigned from the United States Army and became the first brigadier general in the Confederate States Army.

Beauregard held several key commands in the Western Theater. He is known for his defense of Petersburg, Virginia, from Union troops in June 1864, which delayed the eventual fall of the confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia in April 1865.

Beauregard died in his sleep in New Orleans in 1893 and is interred in the vault of the Army of Tennessee in historic Metairie Cemetery. [jet] [ph:L]
