...if you are anxious
to make a fight
I will go anywhere on earth
to make a fight with you...

Wyatt Earp to Ike Clanton 
Tombstone, Arizona
October 26, 1881

Wyatt Earp wasn't Deputy Marshall of Dodge City anymore. He left that town in Kansas for life as a saloon keeper in Tombstone. But on October 26, 1881 - after 30 shots rang out in 30 seconds - Wyatt found himself on the other side of the law, charged with murder.

Three men lay dead, including Ike Clanton's 19-year-old brother Billy.

Wyatt didn't have to "go anywhere on earth to make a fight." He just had to go to the O.K. Corral.
