Civil War in Sequatchie CountyThe outbreak of the war divided Sequatchie County families, and local men served on both sides of the conflict. Union and Confederate armies marched through the county, civilian law broke down, and marauders used the conflict as an excuse to rob, kill, and settle old scores. The William Rankin house, the first dwelling built in Dunlap, was pillaged, and Rankin fled.
