WYATT EARP’S VENDETTA RIDE 10 TH ANNIVERSARY
October 14 th – October 18 th , 2018 A five- day historic horseback ride and tour focusing on Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride of March/April 1882. The ride traces the trail of retribution against the Cowboy faction just after the death of Morgan Earp who was shot in the back and the attempt on Virgil’s life which left his left arm useless for the rest of his life.
With the town of Tombstone serving as an excellent backdrop for our historic ride, Great American Adventures (GAA) transports you back in time to locales few individuals have visited, especially as an organized group of riders.
Travel to the Chiricahua, Dragoon and Whetstone Mountains, through the high country surrounding Tombstone. Ride to the controversial – and virtually unknown – site where Wyatt and his posse stumbled upon the Cowboys, engaged in a deadly, gun-blazin’ spew of lead with the resultant death of Curly Bill Brocius… or did he actually die by Wyatt’s shotgun blast? Our well-informed Tombstone historian will examine the locale’s questionable site based on descriptions given in Wyatt’s biography, and will discuss Curly Bill’s demise.
We’ll also visit Johnny Ringo’s haunted grave-site… was it suicide or did Wyatt and Doc return for their final Vendetta coup-de-grace?
