Trail of Tears General Info

In 1838 the Cherokee, Creeks, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and a lot of Seminole Indians were forcibly removed by the US Military under the Indian Removal Act of 1830. They were removed from their lands in the Southeastern US to the "Indian Territory" which today is Oklahoma. The suffering and death rate was high among all of the different tribes due to lack of food, supplies, and rampant disease, and the Trail of Tears refers to the path that 4,000 out of the 17,000 Cherokee men, women, and children died during their forced exodus.

The Trail of Tears bike ride commemorates the atrocities of the Indian Removal Act and follows the approximate path of Cherokee Indians from Chattanooga TN to Waterloo AL. The 230 mile Trail of Tears ride is on the 2012 Lightning Customs' Major Bike Rallies List.
