On the night of Friday, August 19, 1904, members of the Ohio National Guard and some of the United States troops were participating in the maneuvers of the Ohio National Guard, near Athens, Ohio.

From reports received it appears that some time between 7 and 7.30 p.m., August 19, 1904, a number of men, variously estimated at from 50 to 100, came down a street in Athens in a body, some firing revolvers in the air. In front of the court-house they were met by a squad of the provost guard detailed in the town, consisting of 6 or 7 men and a sergeant and corporal of Company D, Fifth Infantry, Ohio National Guard. Upon this meeting a riot ensued and a number of shots fired. Corpl. Charles Clark, Company D, Fifth Infantry, Ohio National Guard, was killed.

" Buried With Full Honors"

The entire company under command of Captain Van Gordon, the Crescent baseball club, the order of Maccabees, the Ohio state band and hundreds of citizens participated. Rev. J Elwood Lynn of the Central Christian church officiated and he delivered an eloquent address upon the life of the dead soldier. The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful. "
