Largest Organized Motorcycle Ride in History
1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 Rides

1995 - 1997

Darla Graves, then Executive of the AL Indian Affairs Commission and Jerry Davis, AL - TN Trail of Tears Corridor Committee co-founder and CEO of the Alabama Waterfowl Association, initiated meetings and served on a committee that helped write the legislation for the Trail of Tears Corridor of North Alabama.  On July 13, 1995, this legislation passed as Joint House Resolution 95-346 designating the Hwy. 72 route as an Alabama Trail of Tears Corridor.  In 1996, this overland route was recognized  by the National Park Service as an official trail and added to their Trail of Tears National Historic Route brochure.  That year, 80 Trailblazer signs were purchased by the AL-TN Trail of Tears Corridor Committee and erected along the Hwy. 72 route in Alabama. Two Trail of Tears Historical Markers were erected - the first in Waterloo, AL and the second in Bridgeport, AL at the AL-TN state line. Scholarship Assistance: Alabama Indian Affairs Commission (distributed in $500 scholarships) and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (offered as two annual $5,000 Trail of Tears scholarships for Native Americans).


A third Trail of Tears Historical Marker was placed at Ross' Landing in Chattanooga, TN.


The original AL-TN Trail of Tears Corridor Committee acquired a 501(c)3 non-profit status as the AL-TN Trail of Tears Corridor Association, Inc. "ATTOTCAI."  A fourth Marker was placed on the Tennessee River at Doublehead Resort, Town Creek, AL.
