Born in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, son of Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard and Marie Antoinette Laure Villere.

Educated at the old Louisiana State University, then at Alexandria. He interrupted his schooling at age 19 when the Civil War broke out. He enlisted with Slocomb's Battery, Fifth Company, Washington Artillery. Soon made a 1st Lieutenant in the South Carolina Regulars. Formed Ferguson's Battery (South Carolina Light Artillery), and became Captain of the battery upon the death of Commander Ferguson.

He was in the Western campaigns under Johnston, Hood, and Beauregard. He was in almost every battle of note during the long siege, his bravery and fortitude being especially noted at Franklin, Missionary Ridge, Lookout Mountain, and on the fields of western Tennessee. During the close of the war he was elevated to the rank of Major.

After the war he finished his studies in Alexandria, studied law in New Orleans, and took the examination before the Supreme Court; he was admitted to the bar on February 15, 1876.

Formed a law partnership with Judge Henry Chiapella. Named district attorney for the Plaquemines-St. Bernard Judicial District under Governor Nichols. Became judge of the Court of Appeal in 1888. Served as a member of the Court of Appeal for Orleans Parish 1900-1904. He was unanimously endorsed by the bar for re-election, but he didn't win the nomination.

After his retirement from the bench, he served as secretary of the Sanders' campaign committee in 1907, and later was appointed secretary of the Courthouse Commission by Governor Sanders. He later left the Democratic Party and joined the Republicans. His last public appearance was at the big closing rally for Wogan and Loisel.

Judge Beauregard was an influential member of the Louisiana division of the Army of Tennessee, and of Camp Beauregard No. 130, as well as various other organizations.
