I just did a quick Google search on the history of Atlanta, Georgia. If I
understand the history of the town, it was barely civilized until well into
the nineteenth century. There were non -Indian settlements in the area by
the end of the first quarter of the nineteenth century, but the name Atlanta
did not emerge for the area until sometime in the 1840s - officially, 1847,
although by then they did have railroad connection to the rest of the
country (thank you, wikipedia).  That leaves a period of only thirteen years
to the cut-off date of 1860.  

That doesn't sound too promising, but then I gave some thought to what I've
accomplished in my own garden during the last fifteen years; and if someone
in the future should discover my garden diaries, they would provide plenty
of details of this garden during that period. Should that happen, I hope
they realize that other local gardens are nothing like this one.
