Caroline Deslonde Beauregard
Wife of Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard
1881 - March, 1864

As Madame Beauregard lay dying in New Orleans,
she yearned to see her husband once more, but his
duties in the Confederate Army made his return
impossible.  She knew her husband could not be
spared as a soldier of the South, and she resigned
herself to dying without seeing him again.
Madame Beauregard believed "The Country
comes before me."  General Beauregard selected
this sentiment as her epitaph when she was laid to
rest in the Slidell family tomb.

This maker replacing the original inscription,
lost in time, is lovingly provided by
New Orleans Chapter #72
