US Navy Lieutenant Eugene Clark was the leader of the advance party on Yonghung-do Island in Incheon Harbor in advance of the US forces led invasion of Inchon leading to the Battle of Inchon.
Clark, along with two Korean soldiers, infiltrated the mouth of Inchon Harbor several weeks before the invasion and secured vital information about mining that gave US minesweepers the coordinates they needed to clear the landing approaches. For his naval actions using small ships (junks) Clark was called the "Blackbeard of Yonghung Do." After he died Clark's journals were turned into a book: The Secrets of Inchon: The Untold Story of the Most Daring Covert Mission of the Korean War.
