S05E08: Tombstone: Wyatt Earp and the Gunfight at the OK Corral
Called “the town too tough to die,” Tombstone, AZ was made infamous for hosting the now-legendary Gunfight at the OK Corral. In October of 1881, local law enforcement officers engaged a party of suspect criminals in a shootout; despite lasting only thirty seconds, the firefight has become a watershed moment in Western History.

While some view the gunfight as the ultimate conquest of law and order over disorder, others believe it may have been nothing more than a premeditated assassination against unarmed victims. With the smoke now cleared, controversy is the only certainty. On this episode we discuss the Gunfight at the OK Corral. On this episode we discuss the Gunfight at the OK Corral.
