CLARK, Meriwether Lewis (1809-1881), The son of the famed explorer, William Clark. In early in 1861, being strongly pro-secessionist in his political views, Clark was appointed by Missouri Governor Claiborne Jackson to organize recruits for the newly organized Missouri State Guard. He received an appointment of brigadier general of the Guard's 9th Division, but the division was never formally organized during his tenure because of strong pro-Union sentiment in St. Louis. Resigning from the Guard in November 1861, Clark accepted a commission as a major of artillery in the Confederate army. He was promoted to colonel and assigned to various staff positions before a disagreement with General Braxton Bragg led to his dismissal. He commanded the Ordnance Department in Richmond, Virginia until November 1864, when he assumed command of an infantry brigade under General Robert E. Lee. During the Appomattox Campaign, Clark was taken prisoner at the Battle of Saylor's Creek on April 6, 1865. War-date Confederate Autograph Document Signed "M. Lewis Clark Col. C.S. Artillery" October 26, 1863, 1pp. quarto, completed by Colonel Clark and records four entries on Form. No. 22. Fine condition.
