History is not for the faint of heart.
I mean, pretty much everybody in history ends up dying, one way or another.
See, this is why I get up early on my adventures. There was a short while where I had the streets of old Tombstone almost to myself. The history felt closer then.
Weirdly, the most historic place in Tombstone, in some ways, is the Birdcage Theater. It is one of the few buildings that didn’t burn in the fire that came after the town’s heyday.
Pretty much every famous cowboy that you can name ended up here at one time or another.
This place reeks of history. There are still hundreds of bullet holes in the walls and ceiling.
Famous actors, actresses and musicians came from all around the world and somehow ended up here, on that very stage. And it wasn’t easy to get to Tombstone back in the day. Hell, it ain’t easy to get there now.
The private boxes were much sought after.
I wonder how long he has been hanging around?
This is supposed to be one of the most haunted places in the United States. They have nightly ghost tours.
Stay tuned to the next post, where we will delve even more deeply into the history of Tombstone.
And that there card table.
