At this place, Surgeon Charles M. Clark, who had previously been detached from the Regiment as Operating Surgeon, was placed in charge of the Tenth Army Corps' Flying Hospital - a position which he filled with acknowledged skill and ability. After the merging of the Tenth and Eighteenth Corps into the Twenty-fourth Army Corps, Surgeon Clark was appointed Chief Operating Surgeon of the Corps, which position he retained until the surrender of the rebel army. Subsequently, he was placed in charge of the Military Hospital at Richmond, where he remained until its final abandonment in September 1865, being then ordered to Norfolk, Virginia, as chief medical officer of the district, and in charge of the Post Hospital. 2
