Anthony view of General Stephen D Lee, Stephen D. Lee was born in Charleston, the son of Dr. Thomas Lee, a physician, and Caroline Allison. His family was distantly related to the Lees of Virginia. In 1850, Lee received an appointment to the US Military Academy at West Point where he graduated seventeenth of forty-six in the class of 1854. After seven years of service in artillery and staff positions, he resigned his US Army commission in February 1861 to enter Confederate service. As an aide to Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard, he delivered the ultimatum to evacuate Fort Sumter to Major Robert Anderson before the Confederates began their bombardment on April 12, 1861. He was also a member of the party that negotiated the evacuation of Fort Sumter on April 13, 1861. Lee was then elected captain of the artillery battery of the Hampton Legion, but the late delivery of its cannon prevented the battery from traveling with the legion to First Manassas. In autumn, the legion added additional artillery, and Lee was promoted to major. Throughout the spring and summer of 1862, he received additional promotions for his leadership and artillery skills during the Peninula Campaign, the Seven Days’ campaign, Second Manassas, and Sharpsburg (Antietam).
