Tombstone actors_7504We went to Tombstone, Arizona on January 23rd and 24th where the famous O.K. Corral gunfight took place in 1881.

This is where the McLaury brothers and Billy Clanton were shot and died.Tombstone_7803 copy

We went to this cool museum that had the old carriages and some pictures of back then in the town. After you finish the museum you go and see a Lucas on Wagon_7467reenactment of the O.K. Corral gunfight; the actors did a really good job. Then we went to a newspaper museum where we got a copy of the newspaper the day after the gunfight happened.

Then we went around to all the shops and ate at Crystal Palace, which had really good food.

Then we watched a history movie on Tombstone. It talked about how the town was formed. After, we went to tour the old silver mine. We went down 100 feet underground. All of the open spaces in the mine once were all silver and there were a lot of open spaces. Then we watched a gunfight skit in the street.

We ate at a Mexican restaurant – if you ever go there eat here. It’s cheaper and just as good. Then we watched another gunfight skit and went home.

  1. Wow Lucas, great writing skills! I felt like I was right there! I WISH I was right there. I always liked reading about the OK Corral. What was it like to be so far underground?
