Stevens was a military officer, mountaineer, writer, and politician and served in the Union Army during the Civil War. Stevens is also known for making the first documented climb up Mount Rainier with Philemon Beecher (P.B.) Van Trump (1839-1916), another pioneering mountaineer and writer, in 1870. Van Trump guided John Muir to Mount Rainier's summit in 1888 and was one of the first members of the Sierra Club.
