*The Ascension Church on South Street in Jersey City was an Episcopal Church that stood until May 17, 1986, when fire severely damaged the Ascension Church. The building was insured for $847,477. On May 17, 1986 the insurance company paid $574,115 the Newark Diocese. The balance was to be paid if construction was completed by Jan. 1, 1989. The Diocese decided not to release the funds, in effect closing Ascension Church.

1063 William Clarke RAE was a 2nd Lieutenant in Company B, 14th NY State Militia (Fighting Fourteenth) at the time of his death. He also served as a Sergeant in the 84th NY Infantry Regiment. The family records note he died at Laurel Hill, best known as part of the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. One officer and 6 enlisted men died during this engagement. The unit only existed for a few more weeks, for late in May the 14th Militia was ordered to return to Brooklyn and were mustered out, their three year term of enlistment complete.

Other Names: Combats at Laurel Hill and Corbin’s Bridge (May 8); Ni River (May 9); Laurel Hill, Po River, and Bloody Angle (May 10); Salient or Bloody Angle (May 12-13); Piney Branch Church (May 15); Harrison House (May 18); Harris Farm (May 19)
Location: Spotsylvania County, VA
Campaign: Grant’s Overland Campaign (May-June 1864)
Date: May 8-21, 1864
Principal Commanders: Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, Maj. Gen. George G. Meade [US]; Gen. Robert E. Lee [CS]
Forces Engaged: 152,000 total (US 100,000; CS 52,000)
Estimated Casualties: 30,000 total (US 18,000; CS 12,000)
Description: After the Wilderness, Grant’s and Meade’s advance on Richmond by the left flank was stalled at Spotsylvania Court House on May 8. This two-week battle was a series of combats along the Spotsylvania front. The Union attack against the Bloody Angle at dawn, May 12-13, captured nearly a division of Lee’s army and came near to cutting the Confederate army in half. Confederate counterattacks plugged the gap, and fighting continued unabated for nearly 20 hours in what may well have been the most ferociously sustained combat of the Civil War. On May 19, a Confederate attempt to turn the Union right flank at Harris Farm was beaten back with severe casualties. Union generals Sedgwick (VI Corps commander) and Rice were killed. Confederate generals Johnson and Steuart were captured, Daniel and Perrin mortally wounded. On May 21, Grant disengaged and continued his advance on Richmond.
Result: Inconclusive (Grant continued his offensive.)
