Thanks to 47508204 for the following:
I edited Curtis Clark's place of death as Charleston, SC., based on WIKIPEDIA: "Battle of Secessionville (or the First Battle of James Island) was fought on June 16, 1862, during the American Civil War. Confederate forces defeated the Union's only attempt to capture Charleston [Charleston County], South Carolina, by land... Confederate Brig. Gen. Nathan "Shanks" Evans, who had been given command of the 3,000 Confederate defenders of James Island on June 14, barely had time to assess his new command. At about 4:30 a.m. on June 16 the Northern troops attacked the Confederate fort at Secessionville where Colonel Thomas G. Lamar commanded about 500 men who had a number of very heavy artillery guns and a good field of fire. Because of the swampy terrain the federal were forced to only send in one Regiment at a time. In the lead was the 8th Michigan and behind them was the 7th Connecticut and 79th New York..."
