Tombstone Historical Page

To The Tombstone Historical Page!

This site has been developed by Tombstone historian/author Steve Gatto to provide factual information about Tombstone and the people that made it famous.

Fact and fiction have become so thoroughly intangled that the truth of what really happened in Tombstone has become buried in folklore. The main goal of this page is to clear up the myths surrounding Tombstone and the characters that made it famous.
