Regarding Stewart-Lee House. ...Brady photographed Lee on the porch of his home in Richmond shortly after the surrender. As he recalled in 1891, "It was supposed that after his defeat it would be preposterous to ask him to sit, but I thought that to be the time for the historical picture. He allowed me to come to his house and photograph him on his back porch in several situations. Of course I had known him since the Mexican War when he was upon Gen. Scott's staff, and my request was not as from an intruder".
