In fall of 2012-2013, his Photo, crutch, and wooden leg were on display at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, NC.

The display read:

"Samuel Clark

Granville County carpenter Samuel Clark served as a private in the Confederate army from July 1862 until April 1864 in Company E of the Twenty-third Regiment North Carolina Troops (Thirteenth Regiment North Carolina Volunteers).

Clark was taken prisoner in the fighting of South Mountain, Maryland, three days before the Battle of Antietam. He suffered wounds at Chancellorsville, Virginia, on May 3, 1863, resulting in a leg amputation.

He retired to the Invalid Corps. in 1864 and was nominated for the Badge of Distinction for gallentry at Chancellorsville.

On July 6, 1885, Clark applied for a pension because of his disability. He stated in the application that he had received wounds that led to the amuptation of his right leg above the knee. Clark also reported that he was "unable to wear a wooden or cork leg on account of the condition of the stump and [had] to go on crutches." He received approval for a pension." (bio by: Lanie)
