Death of Wyatt Earp
After a life of wandering the frontier as a lawman, businessman, and gambler, Wyatt Earp died on January 13, 1929.
The third of five sons, Wyatt Earp was born on March 19, 1848 in Monmouth, Illinois. His father was often restless and frequently moved his family throughout the unsettled American West, hoping to strike it rich. Wyatt had this same restless spirit that led him to wander the frontier for most of his life.
