"We Shall Remain"

“We Shall Remain”, a PBS television production, is a docu-drama set in the early 1830’s relating the plight of the Cherokee people as they were moved off their lands in north Georgia and Tennessee resulting in a forced march known as the “Trail of Tears”. Ed was the Head Wrangler for the movie and was responsible for the supervision of all horses and riders during the horseback riding scenes. Ed also provided riding instruction for the actors. Along with these duties Ed was cast in the role of “carriage driver” so you’ll see him in the movie driving the carriage. Most of the horses used in the movie were Kiger Mustangs provided by Ed’s friend and client, Dr. Sue Anne Wells of Carter Farms in Chattanooga, TN.
