The Rise and Fall of Tombstone Arizona

History Documentaries

To many around the world and even many Americans themselves, the stereotypical caricature of this country is the Cowboy Culture or the Wild West. These illustrations have been immortalized in many forms of popular media such as film, television, music, books and tall tales. And while the era of the American Wild West has been glorified and glamorized in the past century since it largely came to a close, it definitely does have roots in many truths. In fact, there are many towns and cities across the American Southwest with a history embodying what this era meant. The city of Tombstone, Arizona is a shining example of one of these.
