And his "Gunfight at the OK Corral," a notorious 15-second shoot-out pitting Wyatt, brothers Virgil and Morgan, and Doc Holliday against cattle rustlers in Tombstone, Arizona Territory, on October 26, 1881, may be the most celebrated "shoot-'em-up" of the era. So it's only natural that his hometown, tiny Monmouth in western Illinois, salutes its favorite son with a grand party throughout the year. The year's first Wyatt fest is a birthday celebration, held annually in mid-March. Born on March 19, 1848, in the modest Monmouth house of his Aunt Lizzie, Wyatt lived in town for six years on three different occasions, leaving Monmouth for good in 1869.
His birthplace home, 406 South Third Street, now grandly called the Historic House Museum, is open for tours during the birthday bash. The two-story, Greek Revival-style building, built in 1842, is furnished in four "time periods" stretching from 1840 to 1880. Page 20 An interesting wrinkle: your guided tour might even be led by Earp cousins, several of whom still live in Monmouth. Besides Earp, family photos, papers, books, and furniture, news stories, and other memorabilia trace Wyatt's lawman career.
