Friday's Photo: Soldiers at Camp Beauregard

Camp Beauregard, Pineville, Louisiana - WWI

Camp Beauregard, named for Louisiana native and Confederate general, Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard, is located in Pineville, Louisiana. The Camp was authorized by the War Department on July 15, 1917 so the photo was probably taken closer to 1918, but no later than 1919. The camp was closed in 1919, but at times used for National Guard training until 1940 when reopened. It was closed following WWII, revived in 1973, and currently serves as a training base for the Louisiana National Guard. 

This family member in this photo is Charles Jefferson Frye - first row, second from the end. Charles Jefferson Frye is not a Bryan descendant, but married to Bryan descendant, Allie Belle Trott, a grandaughter of Josie Bryan and Joseph Cook. Josie was the adopted daughter of James Bryan and Alice Wimberly and the biological daughter of Joseph Bryan and Sarah Wimberly. 

Thank you to the Frye Family for allowing me to post this photo. To see more about Charles J. Frye, check my post at this link.
