Images of the Civil War

Silver-hair P. G. T. Beauregard

Less than a year into the war, General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard hair turned gray.

Dashing P. G. T. Beauregard was feared by the Yankees and beloved by Southern women, but less than a year into the War of Secession his hair turned gray. Although the cause was never determined, some claim it was due to stress while others hold it was because of a lack of black hair dye caused by the Union naval blockade of Confederate ports.
