NOTE from the Department of National Records Preservation (By a FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] Request) that was filed on September 22, 2040, this copy of the document known as “Black Friday, the Accidental Third War, Book 1” is released only for historical purposes. It is not to be released to any foreign entity.

The journal is a series of notebooks discovered in August 2037 when the Army’s First Response team arrived in the author’s neighborhood to restore power and take a census of the survivors. The author wrote most of the journal in first person, and the Department of National Records Preservation has decided to leave it as is. Some misspellings may be due to how English was spoken and written before the war. An interesting note: the author, whom the locals called the Elder, with much respect, had a name for the war; he called it “The Accidental Third World War.” The Director of the department, Ryan Longshot, said that was a very appropriate name for the war, and we would now use that when discussing the Third World War.

Fortunately, the Army officer in charge of the company that checked on the survivors in South Knoxville recognized the importance of the notebooks. In reading the journals, she learned the horrible truth that the Third World War had been started by an over-eager AI.

These journals give us an insight into how the war started and how at least one community not only survived but grew to become one of the most important communities in the Southeast district.

Future journals will be released as they are transcribed and reviewed by the
Department of National Records Preservation. Expect to see a journal released every quarter. As always, the Department strives to locate and verify the accuracy of located documents. The Department has classified these journals as NOFORN distribution. They can be reviewed in the presence of a member of the Department.
