James Earp left, Morgan Earp right, this is an albumen print that was never mounted. Of the many Morgans I have, this is probably my favorite, and id say of all the Earp boys Morgan was the most jocular. Original image from the collection of P. W. Butler.
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.
