In 1838, many Native American people were removed from their homelands in the Southeast United States to Oklahoma. Every year since 1994, a group started by Bill Cason marks that part of our history with the Trail of Tears Remembrance Motorcycle Ride. It's a cause that's near and dear to the heart of one of our BRBTV stars, Sheree J. Wilson of "Dallas."
Wilson, whom we all know and love as April Stevens Ewing in the latter part of the series, is participating in the 2007 ride, which begins this weekend.
The annual Trail of Tears Remembrance Motorcycle Ride departs Riverfront Parkway in Chattanooga, Tennessee, at 8 a.m. EST on Saturday, September 15. The one-day ride travels approximately 200 miles to Florence, Alabama. You can stop by and say hello to Wilson on Saturday at the festivities at McFarland Park in Florence. She'll be personally autographing the Trail of Tears Remembrance Motorcycle Ride Official DVD at the official booth.
