Great post gentlemanrob. All I would add is that he is not buried at Riverside in Asheville. He is actually interred at the Elmwood Cemetery in Charlotte, North Carolina. The confusion comes from the grave marker of his father, Col. Stephen Lee. He has the names of his sons on his marker, and folks assume that the sons are also buried close by.

He became an instructor at the North Carolina Military Institute after he resigned from the US Army. The Charlotte Military Academy was not founded until after the war.
Thanks for bringing this up, we can't be giving our readers false information. But this academy was located in Charlotte wasn't it? This is the one D. H. Hill was superintendent of wasn't it?

The North Carolina Military Institute was in Charlotte, and D.H. Hill was connected to the school. The NCMI only operated for three years - 1858-1861. The Charlotte Military Academy was in operation from 1873 until 1882. I don't recall D. H. Hill being involved in the second school. http://michaelchardy.blogspot.com/2010/06/north-carolina-military-institute.html
