I recently visited Tombstone, by way of New Mexico. The place was cool and there are some great authentic attractions like the Bird Cage, and a few original saloons. I do question the authenticity of Boot Hill Graveyard. It is to neat and clean, and there are to many notable names within close proximity of one another. It seemed to good to be true.
My thought is that this is the part of the original graveyard, and they quardened off an area, and painted some planks with every famous name they could think of, and stuck them on the graves of other men and women, who went by different names. It is still a cool place to visit at sunset, with the Dragoon Mts, standing in bold relief against the nights sky. The same sight Wyatt Earp and Curly Bill, viewed over a century ago. That is the authentic experience, just walking in the footsteps of history.
