The Valley of the Shadow

Dunlap Family

The Dunlap family lived in Augusta County, Virginia. Before the Civil War, William H. Dunlap served as a miller's apprentice and Samuel A. Dunlap worked as a day laborer. During the war, William enlisted in the Confederate military. He survived the war and remained in Augusta where he set up his own household and worked as a blacksmith. Samuel also enlisted in the military, as a substitute for George M. Eggleston in the 14th Virginia Cavalry. During the war, he suffered several injuries, but survived the surrender and was paroled after the war. After the war, Samuel lived on a farm with Margaret, probably his mother.
