For well over a century, the gunfight at the O. K. Corral in Tombstone, AZ has been variously depicted in memoirs, histories, novels, movies, and TV shows. However, many of these representations have tended to be inauthentic. This course will clarify the facts of what happened on October 26, 1881 and will also highlight some of the gunfight’s best-known literary and film adaptations.

Since his retirement from the SUNY Canton English Department in 2010, Doug Rose has broadened his readings in American history. Most recently, he has researched the iconic clash between the Earps and Clantons in Tombstone, AZ.
