Trail of Tears Bike Ride

On Friday, June 28, a group of students and sponsors from Cherokee Territory in Oklahoma traveled to the Chief Vann House in Chatsworth, Ga., to start a bike ride that will follow the Trail of Tears back to their home. In 15-20 days, they will be back in Oklahoma. The group of students was really interested in learning more about their own history as the ride commemorated the 25th anniversary of the initial bike ride.
