    Ed Geers was purported to be the first man to win a sulky race using a sulky with pneumatic tires.

    A granite obelisk and a small park just off West 7th Street in Columbia, TN, on the side of Mt. Parnassus, the highest point in Maury County, were dedicated in 1926 to honor the memory of Tennessee's most famous harness racer, Edward "Pop" Geers.

    I wrote my college thesis on Pop. He is a very interesting man. He was tragically killed on the race track in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1924.
