Wyatt Earp

Deputy Marshal of Tombstone, AZ.


Like his brothers, Wyatt Earp was a physically imposing figure for his day: 6 feet (1.8 m) tall, when most men were about 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m). He was described in by the Los Angeles Herald as “quiet, unassuming, broad-shouldered, with a large mustache. He is dignified, self-contained, game and fearless, and no man commands greater respect …”He weighed about 165 to 170 pounds (75 to 77 kg), was long-armed, and muscular, and was very capable of using his fists instead of his weapon to control those resisting his authority.


Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was a gambler, a deputy sheriff in Pima County, and deputy town marshal in Tombstone, Arizona. During Wyatt’s time in Tombstone he took part in a feud between his family and the Cowboy gang. The feud came to a boiling point when Wyatt, Virgil Earp, Morgan Earp, Doc Holiday, Ranger Love, Rose Peregrine, Cassidy Hendershot, Jack Hendershot jr. and Zach Hastings fought the cowboys at the OK Corral.

The fight at the OK Corral lead to the murder of Wyatt’s brother Morgan. In raged Wyatt, Ranger Love and Zack Hastings road the county ridding the area of the cowboy. Having killed most of the Cowboy Gang, Wyatt and Doc Holiday confronted the leaders of the Cowboys at Ike Clanton’s ranch. They killed the remaining Cowboys, but did not expect to encounter the Deadly Drifter.

The Deadly Drifter, Jasper Stone, shot and killed both Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp at the ranch.
