On November 8, 1887 one of the most famous western cowboys, Doc Holliday, succumbed to tuberculosis in Colorado at the young age of thirty-six. Prior to his outlaw stint, Holliday was a successful dentist before he developed a serious cough and was advised to move from Georgia to a more arid climate. Unfortunately this move allowed Holliday to drift away from dentistry and toward gambling, which is where his trouble began. During his "outlaw" years Holliday befriended the even more infamous Wyatt Earp. As his friend, Holliday saved Earp's life several times especially during their rule over tombstone. His most famous duel with Earp was the shootout at the OK Corral in Tombstone that lasted a short thirty seconds. Earp's and Holliday's gun skill left three dead and made the other three run for the hills. During his life, Holliday moved across some of the most famous western towns including Deadwood, Denver, Cheyenne but lived his final days in the Glenwood Springs Sanitarium.
