HISTORIC PANORAMAS XX
Tombstone
By JOSEF and JOYCE MUENCHFrom this early mining town in southeasternArizona has come the rich tradition of the OldWest—the wickedness, gun-play, feud betweenlaw and outlaw, stage holdups and Indian
raids.
Even with surface changes of electric lightsand paved streets, Tombstone is history, fromthe Bird Cage Theater (now a museum), theCrystal Palace saloon, the newspaper
Epitaph,
and the world-famous Lady Banksia Rose toBoothill Cemetery at the edge of town.Most of the early buildings date from 1879to 1882. Two years before the first date EdSchieffelin discovered the Lucky Cuss, insteadof the tombstone he had been warned was allhe could expect in the area. The early 1880switnessed the Earp-Clanton feud, climaxed bythe notorious battle at the O.K. Corral. It wasafter this that Sheriff Slaughter ordered crooksout of town and saw to it that they went.Water in the mines, still believed to hoardriches, closed them down, but Tombstone,"the town too tough to die," is now a pleasantresort community with an incomparable cli-mate and all its glowing memories.DESERT MAGAZINE
