Madison was named for James Madison, the fourth President of the United States. It was in 1856 that the railroad opened its Madison Station, the beginnings of present-day Madison. Nearby Madisonville could not compete with the station and the ever-growing town there and eventually that community closed down. Madison was greatly affected by the Civil War. It was mostly burned during the July, 1861 siege of Jackson. Major General S.D. Lee had his military command in the Madison Station in February 1864
