Our five-day historic Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride in and around Tombstone, Arizona will focus on Wyatt’s Ride of March/April 1882.  Our most successful and ever popular Old West horseback ride attempts to trace Wyatt Earp and his posse’s bloody trail of retribution against the Cow-boy faction.  It was just after Wyatt’s younger brother Morgan was back-shot to death while playing pool at Campbell and Hatch’s billiard parlor on Allen Street that Wyatt took the law into his own hands.  He had held firm when an earlier attempt on the life of older brother Virgil by the Cow-boys left Virgil with his left arm maimed and useless for life.  But now it was war!

Wyatt and his posse of gunmen soon foils an assassination attempt at the Tucson train depot as Morgan’s body was being transferred to California for burial.  Once Wyatt discovers Cow-boys Frank Stillwell and Ike Clanton laying in wait for the Earp family, their first Vendetta killing  began with the brutal murder of Stillwell by Wyatt and his posse.  Stillwell was “the most shot-up man I ever saw” according to a railroad employee who discovered the body.

During the ensuing month, Florentio Cruz, Curly Bill Brocius, and Johnny Barnes would die.  The debate surrounding the Vendetta Ride, the death of Curly Bill Brocius – leader of the Cow-boy faction – and the exact location of their infamous shoot-out, as well as Johnny Ringo’s supposed “suicide” continue to this day.

With the town of Tombstone serving as an excellent backdrop for our historic ride, Great American Adventures (GAA) transports you back in time to locales few individuals have visited, especially as an organized group of riders.

Join us as we travel to the Chiricahua, Dragoon and Whetstone Mountains, through the high country surrounding Tombstone. We’ll ride to the controversial – and virtually unknown – site where Wyatt and his posse stumbled upon the Cow-boys, engaged in a deadly, gun-blazin’ spew of lead with the resultant death of Curly Bill Brocius… or did he actually die by Wyatt’s shotgun blast?  Our well-informed Tombstone historian will examine the locale’s questionable site based on descriptions given in Wyatt’s biography, and will discuss Curly Bill’s demise.

 

We’ll also visit Johnny Ringo’s haunted grave-site… was it suicide or did Wyatt and Doc return for their final Vendetta coup-de-grace?
