Wyatt Earp Poster

Wyatt Earp Poster – The Story-Book Marshal “Fast is fine – but accuracy is final.” 

Wyatt Earp PosterEarp lived a restless life. He was at different times in his life a constable, city policeman, county sheriff, Deputy U.S. Marshal, teamster, buffalo hunter, bouncer, saloon-keeper, gambler, brothel owner, pimp, miner, and boxing referee. Earp spent his early life in Iowa, where in 1870 Wyatt married his first wife, Urilla who contracted typhus and died while carrying their first child.

This setback crushed Earp and he drifted into unsavory practices, much to the anger and disappointment of his Judge father. Within the next two years Earp was arrested, sued twice, escaped from jail, then was arrested three more times for “keeping and being found in a house of ill-fame”.

Wyatt kept heading West and landed in the cattle boomtown of Wichita, Kansas, where he became a deputy city marshal for a year and developed a reputation as a lawman you could count on. In 1876, he followed his brother James to Dodge City,where he became an assistant city marshal. In winter 1878, he went to Texas to gamble, where he met John Henry “Doc” Holliday, whom Wyatt swore saved his life in a dispute.

Wyatt lived to be 80 and died in 1929 – 6 months before the stock market crash that started the Great Depression. In his later years he was befriended by the early Hollywood Movie Stars and was known to the western director John Ford – Stagecoach, My Darling Clementine, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Ford may have been thinking of Wyatt Earp when he said, “When the fact and legend become inter-weaved, print the legend.”
