Re: Pvt. Marcellus Clark; 4th Ky Inf.
Marcellus Jerome Clark (Clarke), from Simpson Co., joined Co. B, 4th Ky. Inf. Some of this company were transferred to Graves' Ky. Btty., where they fought and were surrendered at Fort Donelson. After escaping from Camp Morton, Clark served in Morgan's cavalry, then became an independent guerrilla leader in 1864. Due to his youthful looks and long hair, he was dubbed "Sue Mundy" by Louisville newspaper editor George D. Prentice.
Clark was captured in Meade Co. on March 12, 1865, and hanged in Louisville on March 15.
