War Date Pass All in the Hand of Confederate Gen. G. T. Beauregard
If you’ve ever wanted a beautiful 1-page autograph note of General Beauregard, here it is. It has been in our private collection for 30+ years. It is written on “Head Quarters, Department of South Carolina, Ga. & Fla.” stationery. Dated “Charleston, S.C. October 10th, 1863.”

The pass is made out to a very significant individual – Charles M. Conrad, member of the Confederate Congress. He is to pass “
unmolested within the limits of this department, also to and from Charleston, S.C.” The autograph of Beauregard is big and beautiful. Nice dark ink and visually a 10 out of 10. Beauregard also gives a P.S.: “I send you the above with pleasure. G. T. B.”

Charles M. Conrad was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, became President Fillmore’s Secretary of War and was a lawyer up until the time of the Confederate Constitutional Convention in 1861. He helped write parts of the Constitution and was elected as a Representative of the Confederate Congress. Following the end of the Civil War, Conrad returned to New Orleans to find that his estate had been confiscated by the Union. Excellent condition.
