      Yes, William Tecumseh Sherman was in Northwest Georgia and Northeast
      Alabama. In his memoirs, Sherman mentioned the time he spent in
      Bellefonte, Alabama, and even mentioned a fish-fry given in his honor in
      old Bellefonte. He stated that his travels from Marietta-Kennesaw area
      to Bellefonte in the mid-1840s was of great aid when he was directing
      troops later during the Civil War through these same areas and routes.
      Also, Daniel M. Martin of old Bellefonte wrote to General Sherman during
      the Civil War asking for protection and reminded Sherman of the time he
      had spent in Bellefonte. Congressman W.R.W. Cobb did the same when he
      wrote to General Sherman in 1864.
