The Trail of Tears is a dark episode in American history. Tens of thousands of native Americans forced to relocate West of the Mississippi in the early 1830s, many of which died in the process. The Commemorative Ride follows part of the official route from Bridgeport to Waterloo, Alabama, and is recognized by the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission. The 21st annual ride begins Saturday, September 19. There’s no registration or fees to participate, but donations can be made to the Alabama-Tennessee Trail of Tears Corridor Association.
