125 years ago!

The date, October 26th, 1881. The place Tombstone Arizona, namely a little shanty known as the "O.K. Corral". Imortalized in folk legend, novelization and movies the gunfight that ensued when Wyatt Earp and his two brothers, Virgil and Morgan, were joined by Doc Holliday to bring down a suspected bunch of cattle theives. Known in American folklore are the Showdown at the O.K. Corral. Wyatt Earp was the only one who escapped the fight without getting hit. A movie suggestion today would be "Tombstone". Truely a classic of the Western genre.

  2. Possibly one of my favorite movies. A bunch of great quotes in there as well.

    Maybe I'll try to find a book or two about the characters and read up on it.
