This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A navy surgeon during the Civil War, Charles Stedman remains well known amongst collectors of Civil War memorabilia for his pencil sketches during the War that provide an intimate, first-hand glimpse of events in the Union Navy during that period. 

He also did the original drawings for a humorous book published in 1857, Mr. Hardy Lee, His Yacht, about a prominent Bostonian who builds a yacht and then takes groups of ladies yachting.  Stedman's illustrations, converted to sepia lithographs, include the interior of a shipbuilding shop, the schooner sailing, and a view of the Boston Harbor with the becalmed yacht.  It has been alleged but not proven that Winslow Homer did the lithography for this publication.

Stedman was from a Massachusetts family dating back to the Colonial period, and first recorded in 1638 in the records of ancestor Robert Stedman of Cambridge who emigrated from Holland. 

Charles Ellery Stedman attended Harvard University Medical School as part of the Class of 1852 and received his M.A. Degree in 1855.  He became a doctor in Boston, and had that career interrupted by service in the Civil War.
