The deadliest gunfight in Arizona did not take place on the streets of Tombstone during its wild territorial days, but rather in a remote canyon of the Galiuro Mountains on a snowy Sunday morning in 1918, three decades after the frontier had closed. The numerous books that have been written about the gunfight are filled with unsubstantiated rumors and conspiracy theories, as authors have tried to make sense of it all. Why did eight men fight to the death on a cold winter’s morning in a remote canyon? Were they fighting over the gold mine? Or was the federal government determined to punish draft evaders with deadly force?
