Gunfight – Part 2

Tombstone - Wyatt, Morgan Earp talk with Ike Clanton, re-enactmentWell, as things escalated in Tombstone, Arizona it was becoming inevitable there would be a major clash between outlaws such as The Cowboys and former, as well as present, law enforcers.

It seems like a lot of people were wearing badges but they were having to be replaced regularly.  Also, who could you trust to uphold the law honestly?

Wearing a badge as sheriff, deputy or U.S. Marshal apparently wasn’t an easy task, and in reality placed a target on each one.  It appears the Earps sure tried their best to not get involved.

The Earps didn’t want trouble as they came to Tombstone to make a profit with their business adventures.  They even left their enforcement career behind, hoping to start over, living in prosperity and happiness.

However, the provocation of the outlaws continued and he had no choice.  Tombstone - Doc Holliday confronts Ike Clanton, re-enactment - 2

Isn’t that also like life today.  People want to disrupt our efforts at home and abroad to better their agenda and disrupt efforts to benefit families, peace and prosperity.

Here is a video clip of Part 2 as the scene continues to build toward the eventual, deadly showdown at O.K. Corral.

    1. Thanks very much. It is really interesting and once I did more research it became more clear what had happened. I’ll post part 3 on Friday and it should wrap up the gunfight posting.
