Tombstone, Arizona has a very colorful past, rich in the facts and mythology of America's Wild West. It was in this town that Sheriff Wyatt Earp, his brothers, and Doc Holiday engaged in the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" wherein these "lawmen" killed three and wounded another three. The town was a silver mining boom town at the time and when the silver vein was exhausted a few years later, Tombstone was all but abandoned. What remains today is a small, fairly well-preserved and authentic wild west town.
One of the most popular tourist stops on a visit to Tombstone is it's cemetery, known as BootHill. There are over 250 graves here, many well known for their colorful epitaphs, like the one you see for Lester Moore above. The cemetery also holds the remains of Billy Clanton, Frank and Tom McLaury, killed by the Earp Brothers at the O.K. Corral shootout.
