Maj Lewis R Stegman

10 January 2020

Captain Lewis R Stegman led Company E of the 102nd New York Infantry at Antietam, was wounded 4 times during the war, and mustered out as Major of the First US Veteran Volunteers in 1866. In 1912 he was appointed chairman of the New York Monuments Commission and presided over the dedication of the New York State monument at Antietam on 17 September 1920.

This carte-de-visite of him, probably taken in 1865, was posted to Findagrave by Larry Chenault, from his collection.
