During the War Between the States, was there any Confederate action at Cheaha Mtn.? Today the area of the highest point is located in Cleburne and Clay Counties. These two counties were not created until December 1866. During the 1861-1865 time period, Mt. Cheaha was in Talladega and Calhoun Counties. Will appreciate knowing if there was any "action" in that immediate area during the WBTS. Thanks!
