Waynesboro is a small city-state located in the former state of Tennessee.
Waynesboro was a city in and the county seat of Wayne County, Tennessee, United States before Doomsday.
Waynesboro was located 105 miles from Nashville, and 135 miles from Memphis, both targets on Doomsday. Some refugees from the suburbs made it to Waynesboro but many could not make the over 100 mile trek to Waynesboro and settled in other surviving communities. This prevented Waynesboro from becoming overwhelmed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
In September and October of 1983, several towns in the mid-south region along the Tennessee/Alabama/Mississippi borders banded together for survival in the new post doomsday environment.
Birth of A New Confederacy
