...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
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.
