1. Tombstone

TOMBSTONE: Virgil Earp is wounded on December 28, 1881, and Morgan Earp is killed on March 18, 1882; the two events that trigger Wyatt Earp's search for vengeance.

2. Contention

CONTENTION: On March 19 Morgan Earp's coffin is brought to this town, with James Earp to accompany the remains to Colton, CA.

3. Tucson

TUCSON: After dining at the nearby Porters Hotel on the evening or March 20, the Earp party returns to the railroad depot and spots Frank Stillwell and Ike Clanton lying in wait on flat cars with weapons pointed at the "Earp" train. Well known sprinter, Ike, escapes. Frank does not.

4. Pete Spence's Wood Cutting Camp

PETE SPENCE'S WOOD-CUTTING CAMP: Wyatt Earp and his Vendetta posse ride to South Pass on the morning of March 22, looking for Spence. He isn't there, but they find the unfortunate Florentino Cruz. Spence surrendered, likely for his own safety in Tombstone.

5. Iron Springs

IRON SPRINGS: On the warm afternoon of March 24, Wyatt Earp and his men ride here for refreshment and to meet their fellow posseman Charlie Smith. Instead, they find, perhaps their greatest quarry, Curly Bill Brocius.

6. Dragoon Summit Station
