On Saturday, October 20th, 2019, the 40th John Wisdom Wagon Train and Billy Puryear Ride Saddled up for the last time with their famous wagon train.
The public was invited to help celebrate 40 Years of the event by lining Broad Street for a parade to cheer on participants of the Wagon Train.
Wagon Train participants in the parade followed a 16-mile course that revisited a portion of the path of John Wisdom, known as “Georgia’s Paul Revere” who warned Rome of an impending attack by Union forces in May of 1863.
