William T. "Tom" Clark, Indiana.

The following was taken from the 70th., Regimental History.

William T. Clark, Private, 70th., Indiana Infantry, Company G., Enlisted July 16, 1862, at Marion County, Indiana, Age 20, Mustered out May 15, 1864.  Killed by gun shot May 15, 1864, at Resaca, Georgia.

Tom Clark of my company, not more than four feet away on the right. He was lying on his stomach, with head up and gun presented, evidently watching for a chance to make an effective shot. As I looked at him a ball struck him in the throat, and as it entered his vitals, he uttered such a hideous scream as I never heard before or since.
