Tombstone Trials Radio Play *Tulip Time

Shows at 11 am and 6:30 pm

In the aftermath of the O.K. Corral Shootout, the Earp Brothers and their friend Doc Holliday were brought before a c ourt of law and charged with murdering the McLaury Brothers and Billy Clanton. This preliminary hearing was presided over by Wells Spicer and resulted in a not-guilty verdict for the defendants. Long-forgotten connections to Iowa have led to a play, Tombstone Trial: the Iowa Connection, based on this hearing. The connections cover the state and include Pella, Iowa, where the Earp Brothers grew up; Belle Plaine, where the McLaury Brothers had their boyhood home before moving to Buchanan County; and Tipton, where Wells Spicer grew to adulthood. Further Iowa connections are to Fairfax, Davenport and Tama, Iowa. Join us for this Iowa-connected history show.
