Historical Information

Welcome to the Historical Information Page!

This page has been developed by Tombstone historian/author Steve Gatto to provide factual information about Tombstone and the people that made it famous. Today fact and fiction have become so thoroughly intangled that the truth of what actually occurred in Tombstone has become buried in folklore.

This information is the result of over ten years of research on Tombstone. Much of the material is based on contemporary newspaper accounts and court records. Opinions vary as to what really happened during Tombstone's turbulent years. What follows is factual information based on these contemporary sources.
