Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day is a time to reflect and remember those who are no longer with us, but are not forgotten.  This year I went to Tombstone, Arizona to see a bit of American history that is being preserved at Tombstone.  One of the most famous gun battles of the old west was the shootout at the O.K. Corral between the Earp’s and the McLaury’s that occurred on the morning of October 26th, 1881.  This gun battle left cowboys Tom McLaury, Frank McLaury, and 19 year old Billy Clanton dead where Virgil Earp, Morgan Earp, and Doc Holliday were only injured.  Shown in the image is the final resting places of the McLaury’s and Billy Clanton.
