Wyatt's decision to turn in his badge for the peaceful life of an Arizona rancher are cause for rejoicing among Dodge City's criminal elements and sadness for the peace-loving citizens. Over Wyatt's objections, Mayor Kelley and Judge Tobin insist a going-away party for Earp and his brothers, while some of the local cowhands plan to punctuate the festivities with gun play. Earp doesn't want the celebration due to his fear of a disturbance as many of the southern cowhands still dislike him as a northerner and Marshal. They persuade Earp that the town must prove it has the confidence to exist peacefully without Earp. During his talks with Mayor Kelly and Judge Tobin Earp recalls many events that marked his stay in Dodge City which are recalled via flashbacks. Written by David Bassler

Did You Know?


Morgan Earp: Why should anyone hate Wyatt? He's only doin' his job.
Doc Holliday: Well, no marshal ever won a popularity contest. Besides, Wyatt is a Northerner in a town full of Southerners and the Civil War is not long over. And, being from Georgia, it's a marvel I don't hate him myself.
