By Chuck Jager
In the summer of 2015, history teacher Chuck Jager hopped on his bicycle in downtown Detroit and set off across Michigan. Over a five-day journey, Jager attempted to retrace the old Territorial Road, the route of Michigan pioneers in the 1830’s. In the illustrated presentation “Pedaling the Pioneer Path,” Jager will not only share his adventures, but also the history of the road and the sites along Michigan’s 19th century Main Street. Part history, part travel guide, and part memoir, this presentation will take you on a bicycle adventure across Michigan and back through the past. Chuck Jager is a high school teacher who loves to include local history in his U.S. History classes and ride his bicycle to school. He is also the executive director of the Morton House Museum, “The Home of Benton Harbor History.” Membership meeting will follow program.
