Wyatt Earp. In December 1879, Earp joined his brothers Virgil and Morgan in Tombstone, Arizona. Tombstone was a boomtown erected after the discovery of silver. His good friend Doc Holliday, whom he'd met in Kansas, joined him. The riches the Earp brothers hoped to find never came, forcing Earp to return to law work. In a town and region desperate to tame the lawless cowboy culture, Earp was a welcome sight.
James Earp, Wyatts oldest full brother, present in Tombstone when the famous fight broke out, but rumor has him eating lunch at the time, completely unaware of what was about to happen!
