in Old Tombstone, AZ
In the 1880s, Tombstone was a booming mining town that brought a
rush of those looking to strike it rich. Gold and silver was the
lure that also became a magnet to thieves, card-sharks, murderers,
rustlers and an abundance of unsavory bad guys. The streets came
alive with hundreds of saloons, gambling halls and bawdy houses.
a day in Tombstone was a victory as its famous Boot Hill Cemetery
overflowed with those shot during poker games, killed in drunken-induced
gunfights and even hung for simply becoming a public nuisance. Undertaking
was no doubt a lucrative profession.
