"Born in Philadelphia during the American Revolution, Stewart had met President Washington and gone to sea as a cabin boy on a merchantman before age thirteen. In March 1798, at age nineteen, he received a naval commission one month before the formal establishement of the Department of the Navy. Stewart enjoyed an illustrious naval career. Thomas Jefferson recognized his exploits in the Mediterranean during the Barbary Wars, while James Madison sought his advice at the outset of the War of 1812. Stewart trained many future senior naval officers - including David Porter, David Dixon Porter, and David G. Farragut - during service in three wars. In his eighties, he served as a pallbearer at President Lincoln's funeral."
