A Good Day In Tombstoneby Jim Gressinger on Jun. 01, 2013, under Apache Wars In Southern Arizona, Gunfight At The OK Corral, Old West
Recently we enjoyed another day trip to Tombstone. When out-of-town guests are planning their first visit to Tombstone, we always recommend they take Dr. Jay’s Tombstone Walking Tour. His tours are entertaining, enlightening, and the best way to appreciate the real history of the most famous town in the Old West.
While Dr. Jay’s Walking Tour is unique, it doesn’t compare to one of his many ceremonies, including weddings.
On SouthernArizonaGuide.com we have a lot of brief local histories. Understanding our unique history & heritage is the only way to truly appreciate what we have here. The most fun I’ve had since creating SouthernArizonaGuide.com 18 months ago is interviewing characters from our past. For example, we have these brief video interviews:
- Tom McLaury explaining how the Earps & that weasel Holliday are trying to force him & his cowboy friends into a gunfight.
- A Spanish soldado stationed at the Tucson Presidio in 1776 talking about his life in this isolated frontier of New Spain and explaining how the Apaches don’t fight fair.
- The wife of a Spanish soldier at the Presidio talking about the May 1, 1782 Apache attack that would have wiped Tucson off the map, except for one thing.
