American History, Culture & Customs
Styles and fashions have been copied, altered and adapted since time began and American antiques are no different. The development and evolution of the USA gave rise to unique styles and pieces combining practicality, abundance or scarcity of materials along with native American Indian influence.
Wyatt Earp Shotgun
The gun Wyatt Earp used to kill “Curly Bill” Brocius was sold in February 2020 for $375,000.
Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was born March 19, 1848, and died January 13, 1929. He was an Old West lawman and gambler who worked in a wide variety of trades throughout his life and took part in the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, during which lawmen killed three outlaw Conchise County Cowboys. He is often erroneously regarded as the central figure in the shootout, although his brother Virgil was the Tombstone City and Deputy U.S. Marshal that day, and had far more experience in combat as a sheriff, constable, marshal, and soldier.
