BeyersChristiaan FrederikGeneralBorn in Stellenbosch in 1869, he moved to the Transvaal in 1888. He worked as an attorney in Boksburg and, when war broke out, he joined his local commando in Boksburg and was soon voted in as Assistant Field Cornet. After the fall of Pretoria, he was promoted to Assistant Commandant-General of the Waterberg and Zoutpansberg Commandos. He participated in the battle at Nooitgedacht with General de la Rey on 13 December 1900. He operated in the Magaliesberg area and harassed the British. He represented the Boers of the Waterberg in the Vereeniging Peace Conference from 15 May 1902, where he chaired the proceedings. Resuming his practice as an attorney in Pretoria after the war, Beyers became Speaker of the Transvaal Parliament under the Responsible Government. He was appointed Commandant-General of the newly founded Union Defence Force In 1912. In 1913, he visited Europe and met Kaiser Wilhelm II. On his return to South Africa, he clashed with General Louis Botha, whom he considered overly concerned with overseas commitments. He started negotiations with General De La Rey and others in opposition to the Government. At the outbreak of the Great War, he felt he had no choice but to resign. General Smuts accused him of treason. He was involved in the Rebellion and was drowned while crossing the Vaal River, pursued by Government troops. Boer Forces
