This Day in History: 1881 – tensions near the breaking point in Tombstone as the Earp brothers and the Clanton-McLaury families vie for power in the Arizona Territory.

Fact of the Day:  The Earps (city dwellers), and the Clanton-McLaurys (ranchers) were at such odds in Tombstone that in October of 1881, they stooped to violence to solve their issues, engaging in what is now infamously known as “the shootout at the OK Corral.”

Strange, but True: The “shootout at the OK Corral” in 1881 lasted only 30 seconds, but it has been immortalized in three major film productions, and dozens of television shows.  In fact, the shootout might be the only reason we know the names Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
