Origins

Before declaring independence, the would-be citizens were living in Cobb County, where city ordinances had been passed that allowed the government to control the living situations of individuals, even on private property. Specifically, Cobb County Ordinance Sec. 134-1,[1] which was forcing citizens of Cobb County into high-cost housing and preventing them from exploring other options. The would-be founders, along with many other citizens of the county saw this as a terrible violation of civil liberties and an overreach of government. As a result, they were forced to explore other options and eventually concluded that the ideal course of action was to declare independence. Thus, the Free Nation of New Athens was born.
