Tombstone, Arizona Territory, Wednesday afternoon, October 26, 1881: Near the O.K. Corral the Lawmen Virgil, Wyatt and Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday met the outlaws Ike and Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury and Billy Claiborne. Both parties red 30 shots in half a minute; the McLaury brothers and Billy Clanton died. The incident was the climax of the deadly rivalry between the Earps and Ike Clanton and his friends. Later it leads to the assassination of Morgan and the maiming of Virgil Earp and the bloody vendetta Wyatt Earp as U.S. Marshal and his friend Doc Holliday led against their enemies. The Gun ght in the O.K. Corral became one of the most famous incidents in Wild West history, making Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday a legend of that era portrayed in countless books and movies.
