The 2013 Remember the Removal bike riders will spend the next three weeks retracing their ancestors’ footsteps along the Trail of Tears, which this year, marks the 175th anniversary.
On Monday, 22 Cherokee Nation and Eastern Band of Cherokee citizens pedaled 70 miles, starting in New Echota, Ga. The riders rolled their bikes through Georgia and then on to Tennessee, passing through Dayton on Tuesday.
