On the afternoon of October 26, 1881, in a vacant lot in Tombstone, Arizona, a confrontation among eight armed men erupted in a deadly shootout. The gunfight at the O.K. Corral shaped how future generations came to view the old West. Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Clantons became the stuff of legends, symbolic of a West populated by good guys in white hats and bad guys in black ones. It's colorful stuff - but the truth is even better.
