Univeristy 1846-8; graduated from law department of Harvard University; practiced law, 1855-51; entered the Confederate service as a Lieutenant, promoted successively to: Capt., Maj., Col., and Brig-General; elected to 43rd, 44th, 45th, 46th and 47th Congresses as a Democrat -- from Howard Co., 11th district; Clerk of the House of Representatives, 1883-89; Fayette, Mo.

      John Bullock Clark, Jr. (January 14, 1831 ? September 7, 1903) was a general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War and a postbellum five-term U.S. Congressman from Missouri.

      Clark was born in Fayette, Missouri, the son of John Bullock Clark, a three-term member of the United States House of Representatives. He attended Fayette Academy and the University of Missouri before spending two years in California for travel and adventure. Clark moved to the East and graduated from the law department of Harvard University in 1854. He was admitted to the bar and practiced in his native Fayette from 1855 until the commencement of the Civil War.

      He entered the Confederate army as a lieutenant and was promoted successively to the rank of captain and then major in the 6th Missouri Infantry. He saw action in several battles, including Carthage and Springfield. Promoted to the regiment's colonelcy, Clark commanded a brigade at the Battle of Pea Ridge. Primarily serving in Missouri and Arkansas under Thomas C. Hindman, he was rewarded with a commission as a brigadier general on March 6, 1864. He then fought in the Trans-Mississippi Theater under John S. Marmaduke and Jo Shelby, including Price's Raid.

      After the war, he resumed his law practice in Fayette and was elected as a Democrat to the Forty-third and to the four succeeding Congresses, serving from 1873 until 1883. He was Chairman of the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads (Forty-fourth Congress). Clark was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1882, but stayed in Washington, D.C. as the Clerk of the House of Representatives from 1883 until 1889, when he retired from politics.

      He engaged in the practice of law in Washington, D.C. until his death in that city. He was buried in Rock Creek Cemetery.
