Dr. William "Tiger" Dunlop (1792-1848) A surgeon in the Connaught Rangers of Britain, William was active in the campaigns against the Americas in 1813, 1814, and 1815 (War of 1812). The 89th Regiment left Britain on 4 February 1813, with Dunlop appointed assistant surgeon. The regiment was posted to Upper Canada during the War of 1812 in time to participate in the Battle of Crysler's Farm and the Battle of Lundy's Lane.Like other memorable war doctors, he was faced with seemingly impossible tasks. After the battle of Chippawa, Dunlop worked alone on 220 men from both armies because the chief surgeon had been sent home and the chief assistant had fallen ill from fatigue. Apparently, Dunlop carried on alone for more than two full days, barely sitting down and stopping only to eat and change clothes. Despite his dedication as a surgeon, Dunlop had seen enough blood for a lifetime during the war. He returned to England where he pursued journalism for a time, but eventually moved back to Canada to work with John Galt in the Canada Company. From 1841 until 1846 he represented Huron Riding in the Legislative Assembly. He died in 1848.
