Waynesboro lays claim to being the "Bird Dog Capital of the World." For nearly 120 years, Waynesboro has been home to the Georgia Field Trials– a bird dog competition.
Waynesboro played a significant role during the Civil War. After General Sherman captured Atlanta on November 15, 1864, he began his infamous "March to the Sea" heading towards Savannah. The Battle of Waynesboro was fought on December 4, 1864, towards the end of that march. Union calvary forces under Brig. Gen. Judson Kilpatrick defeated Confederate cavalry led by Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, opening the way for William T. Sherman's armies to capture the port of Savannah which they did on December 21, 1864.
