New Orleans City Park (Images of America)

1915 - Beauregard Monument


A year after the Monteleone Gate was erected at the Esplanade entrance to the park, the monument to General Beauregard was placed in front of it in 1915. The bronze figure on a base of granite was dedicated by the Beauregard Monument Association at a cost of $22,000 on the 97th anniversary of Beauregard's birth. The sculpture was created by Alexander Doyle, who also designed the Robert E. Lee statue at Lee Circle. (LDL)
