Civil War Confederate Brigadier General, US Congressman. He was born at Fayette, Missouri, and attended local schools, later he entered the Fayette Academy. Furthering his education he entered the University of Missouri when he was 15. After 2 years there he entered Harvard Law School, graduating in 1854 and opening a law practice in Fayette, where his father, the senior Clark had begun his own law career in 1824. In 1861 he left his successful practice for the Confederate army, where he was appointed Lieutenant; however he soon rose to Captain of the 6th Missouri Infantry. Taking part in the Battles of Carthage and Wilson's Creek, a Major in the latter action, he was noted for gallant action in both events. Later he received a commendation from Major General Thomas C. Hindman after leading a brigade at the Battle of Pea Ridge as a Colonel. He was commissioned a Brigadier General on March 6, 1864. He spent the rest of the war with Brigadier General John S. Marmduke's Missouri division, commanding a brigade of cavalrymen who were a major part of the "expeditionary force" in Major General Sterling Price's raid into Missouri in 1864. After the war, he went home to Fayette and his law practice. In 1873 he was elected to Congress and remained in office for 10 years, ending his congressional career as clerk of the House of Representatives. He maintained a law office in Washington from 1889 until his death. (bio by: Ugaalltheway)
