Madison, GA

One of the places that we absolutely must visit when in the Atlanta area is Madison, GA. 

Madison is a beautiful little town about 1 hr East of Atlanta.  It has a bunch of rich history that I would never be able to do justice…so, click here and here for information about Madison and click here to see why Brenda likes to go to Madison.

 

 

Here is a snipit pulled from the wealth of wisdom “wikipedia” about a unique fact about Madison, GA,

It is known as “The town Sherman refused to burn”, as it was spared during General Sherman‘s march to the sea during the Civil War. While many believe that he spared the town because it was too beautiful to burn, the actual fact is that Madison was home to pro-Union Senator Joshua Hill. Hill had ties with General Sherman’s brother at West Point, so his sparing the town was more political than appreciation of its beauty.

Pretty cool distinction about Madison from the Civil War.  This is just one of the reasons why we love the south.
