Admire antebellum architecture

Madison, Georgia

Location: Madison, Georgia

I remember first exploring the small town of Madison in college when my photography professor sent the class on an assigment to the small Georgia town. He said the antebellum architecture would be a great backdrop for capturing texture and lines using black and white film. I had always heard that Madison was “the town so beautiful that Sherman refused to burn it.” The town is quite charming and a nice day trip from Atlanta (1.5 hours). But, if you read a little history about the Civil War, it turns out that Madison’s mayor was a Unionist who reached a deal with General Sherman’s troops not to destroy the town.
