On April 12th 1862 James J Andrews and a band of Union spies stole the locomotive "The General" from under the watchful eyes of guards at nearby camp Mc.Donald while all passengers and crew were eating their breakfast at the Lacy Hotel.This famous locomotive can be seen at the Southern Museum of The Civil War in Kennesaw Georgia.
