It may not be a date that you had to memorize for your American History class in school, but what happened that day in small mining town of Tombstone in the Arizona Territory has had a very large impact on the national imagination. Almost one-hundred-thirty years later, what is now known as the gunfight at the O. K. Corral is still making news.
November is Native American Heritage Month. As part of the celebration the Library of Congress has a website with the stories of Native American Veterans. It’s as part of its Veterans History Project which collects the stories of the men and women who served their county. The first sentence on the page read, “American Indians have eagerly served a government which did not always keep its word to their ancestors.”
