Wyatt Earp, The Clanton Brothers, Doc Holiday, The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone, Arizona and the U.S. Marshals Service are woven into the mythology of the American Wild West. Wednesday, June 11, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is taking a look inside America’s most storied law enforcement agency with a descendent of Marshall Wyatt Earp, Mike Earp. And we’ll be traveling to Tombstone, Arizona, site of the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral to talk with some of the current residents of Tombstone talking to men who are keeping the legends of the wild, wild west alive, including Terry “Ike” Clanton, descendant of the Clantons, Kenn Barrett, the former City Marshal and Chief of Police, and Stephen Keith, known all over town as Doc Holliday.

In his new book U.S. Marshals, Mike Earp, who retired as the third-highest-ranking official in the service, tells the thrilling inside story of today’s U.S. marshals -- America’s oldest law enforcement agency, established in 1789 by George Washington. Giving a detailed account of its colorful history, Earp brings the past to the present in a revealing account of what few people realize is a three decades transformation of the entire structure of law enforcement in America.

Tombstone, Arizona is a historic western city in Cochise County, Arizona, founded in 1879 by Ed Schieffelin in what was then Pima County, Arizona Territory. It was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West and the site of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral fought October 26, 1881 between the outlaw cowboys Billy Claiborne, Ike and Billy Clanton, and Tom and Frank McLaury, and the opposing town Marshal Virgil Earp and his brothers Assistant Town Marshal Morgan and temporary lawman Wyatt, aided by Doc Holliday designated as a temporary marshal by Virgil. Twenty four seconds and 30 shots later, Billy Clanton, Tom and Frank McLaury were mortally wounded.
