Earp, Wyatt (1848-1929)

A legend of the American West, Wyatt Earp is immediately connected to the notorious gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. Earp was a Pima County Arizona Deputy Sheriff and Deputy Town Marshal in Tombstone at the time. Earp and two other lawmen killed three outlaw cowboys during the shootout. In addition to his time as sheriff, he also was known for being a gambler, buffalo hunter, miner, teamster, and saloon keeper.
