Were your great-great grandparents born in the United States OR living in the United States between 1840 and 1855?  If so, then there is a very STRONG probability that your ancestors fought in the War of 1861-1865.

Men (and yes, a few WOMEN!) in every state supported either the Federal or Confederate cause AND chose to don the Blue or Gray uniform at some point during the war.

You can find out by simply asking for help looking into your genealogy.  And when you learn that your ancestors DID serve during the War of 1861-1865, you are eligible to join ...

Evolution Of A Memorial To A True Son Of Louisiana ...

On February 21, 1893, nineteen friends of the recently deceased Pierre Gustave Toutant de Beauregard met in New Orleans, and determined to raise funds for the erection of a commemorative monument. A collection of $197.50 was taken, and two days after this meeting, the Beauregard Monument Association (BMA) was incorporated.   

An executive committee of fifty members was chosen to lead the effort. By May 16, 1893, less than three months after formation, the BMA had receipts of $ 2,343.25.  But times were difficult and donations slowed.  On October 20, 1895, a sham battle fought between veterans of both the blue and the grey was waged at New Orleans City Park, raising an additional $ 1,461.65. On April 19, 1899, the Ladies Confederate Memorial Association contributed another $ 35.00

Money came by fits and spurts.  A musical at Washington Artillery Hall netted $ 69.30; a jousting tournament at the Fair Grounds netted $ 139.90; the Army of Tennessee Camp № 2 donated $ 125.00, and the Louisiana Historical Society contributed $ 50.00

There were bright spots as well. The United Daughters of the Confederacy, led by New Orleans Chapter № 72, raised $ 4,732.31. The State of Louisiana contributed $ 500.00. The estate of Mrs. C. Tilton donated $ 2,000. One of the most important gifts was the donation of $1,000.00 and a plot of land upon which to erect the monument, in October 1907, by the City Park Improvement Association. 

At that time, the main entrance to City Park had been at City Park Avenue and Alexander Street. With the Park’s boundaries now extending to Bayou St. John, a new entrance to the park at Esplanade Avenue was constructed, the Park working with the monument association to insure a harmonious entry. Thus was born Beauregard Circle. 

By this time, enough funding had been collected to begin the monument. In December of 1908, the BMA contracted with noted artist Alexander Doyle of New York, for the cost of $ 15,000, to create a bronze equestrian statue of General Beauregard. A granite pedestal was to be created by the noted New Orleans firm of Albert Weiblen, for an additional $ 5,900. Mr. Doyle indicated that his low bid was due to his acquaintance with the general. 

All in all, the Association raised $ 22,962.58, and after all expenses had been paid, was left with $ 311.15. On November 11, 1915, the Beauregard Monument was unveiled. Participating in the celebration were many old soldiers who were in town for the annual United Confederate Veterans convention, as well as school children from the nearby P. G. T. Beauregard School, family and friends of Beauregard, civic leaders, and the general public. 

November 11, 2015, marks the centennial of the dedication of the Beauregard Monument, a fitting tribute to P. G. T. Beauregard and to the twenty two year effort of the Beauregard Monument Association to commemorate the most famous Creole soldier of New Orleans.
