Clark served briefly as a private confederate soldier in Co."B", 2nd Georgia Infantry State troops. He is also listed as serving with Co."B", 18th Georgia Infantry Regiment. It is known that his company was first designated as Co. "B", 2nd Georgia Infantry State troops when he first enlisted. A few months later after being accepted by the confederate government as Confederate Government soldiers the unit was designated Co."B", 18th Georgia Infantry Regiment. At least this is believed to be the case. He is listed as serving with both units although they where really the same unit just called something different at different times. This unit was assigned to the famous "Hood`s Texas Brigade" until two months after the Battle of Sharpsburg, Maryland in late 1862. Clark never made it this far. The unit was sent to Virginia from Georgia where he served until he got sick and died at Chimborazo, a Richmond area soldiers hospital. His unit was present at the War Between the States, Siege of Yorktown and was near the works during the skirmishing on April 5th.
He is buried in a grave with three other soldiers some of the first to be buried in Oakland Cemetery outside Richmond! The cemetery records list him and tell exactly where he is buried. Confederate Rest, Division "A", Row "G", number 37. There is one small marker with numbers on it indicating the spot of all four soldiers. Not a fitting end for a young man with so much promise!
