are not shown and a couple of quotes also.
The first is a full page picture of Tom McLaury with this quote from journalist and letter writer Clara S. Brown.
""At the Inquest yesterday; the damaging fact was ascertained that only two of the cowboys were armed, it thus being a most unequal fight."

Then a very interesting drawing from above the fight site showing the eight men and two horses.

Then a drawing of the fight in the wrong place, the Fremont entrance to the OK Corral. It was west of there at Fly's.

Then a large picture looking west on Allen Street from near the Oriental with this quote in it, "I did not see Tom McLaury with a pistol. My mind is a little confused about that part of it."--Ruben C. Coleman" [If he can be confused being a partial eye witness, we are allowed to be confused also]

Then pictures of Wyatt and Frank.

Then a drawing Wyatt and John Flood made of the gunfight area in the 1920s that took them 6 hours. It is very faint, magnifying glass needed.

Lee Silva makes his point clearly and it needs to be considered by anyone interested in this subject.
He doesn't mention Keefe at all but seems to say Fuller took the gun from the little house, meaning Keefes identifying it later in court won't fly well.

I won't hate you. LOL The whole idea is for those interested to read and reach their own conclusion or decide a sure conclusion is not possible. The discussion is intended to be fun and hopefully interesting. The conclusions are for each person to make to satisfy themselves.
Who knows if Tom was armed or not?
Keep Laughing

      Hi Tom, I actually had this bookmarked and thought I'd post it up here in case it can save some stamp and envelope fees. Assuming this is the same article, that is, but I'm pretty sure everything Kenn... more

      • Thank you, Ben.Bob Cash, Wed Apr 28 22:28
        I thought it was on, but I looked for it today for about ten minutes and couldn't find it. It is an essential article on the street fight.
        • And, of course, Jeff's and Casey's article...Anonymous, Wed Apr 28 22:43
 essential, too. Thanks for letting people know how to access both. Now if we could just get something by Joyce on that web site.

        I think Felehey may have seen both McLaurys with pistols, but I think it very doubtful Mrs. Collier saw Tom. I think she is referring to Frank. Frank was bent over from the slug in his gut and from he... more
