Daniel Hyacinthe Liénard de Beaujeu (19 August 1711 - 9 July 1755) was a French officer during the Seven Years War. He participated in the Battle of Grand Pre (1747). He also organized the force that attacked General Edward Braddock's army after it forded the Monongahela River. The event was later dubbed the Battle of the Monongahela. Beaujeu led his small force into the attack, where he was shot dead in the opening moments when the attack was launched on July 9th, 1755. However, his patronage to the Native American customs such as wearing war paint and regalia, helped raise the morale and fighting tenacity of the warriors under his command. He was buried outside the walls of Fort Duquesne.
