President Chester A. Arthur, who threatened Tombstone with the prospect of martial law in the spring of 1882, after the murder of Morgan Earp and retaliatory killings by Wyatt Earp and his band of followers.

The ultimatum from Washington was poorly received in Tombstone, but the town quieted down all the same.
