The birthplace of the famous lawman has been maintained to the present day.<br /><br />Earp is best remembered for the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The board of the Wyatt Earp Birthplace faces a very different kind of fight.<br /><br />Audie Durand is the volunteer curator for the site. Each year it hosts a re-enactment of the famous gunfight. This year the board wasn&#39;t sure it could afford it.<br /><br />She says, &ldquo;Even as late at June 1st we were having to decide whether or not to have the shoot-out on August 4th.&rdquo; Fri, 27 Jul 2012 12:14:57 +0000 Jim Lenz 18940 at http://tspr.org Financial Challenges for Earp Birthplace
