Course detail: OSH082 - Gunmen, Scoundrels, and Lawmen of the West
This course will examine the exploits of some of the Old West's most colorful and notorious individuals, such as Wild Bill Hickok, John Perrett (alias "Potato Creek Johnny") and Calamity Jane-and the towns they inhabited, such as Deadwood, S.D. Then we'll visit Dodge City, the "Wickedest Town in the West," home to lawmen Wyatt Earp, "Bat" Masterson and Bill Tilghman and showmen Eddie Foy and Mysterious Dave Mather. Finally, we'll explore Tombstone, Ariz., and the famous shootout at the O.K. Corral involving Wyatt Earp, his brothers and "Doc" Holliday. Other characters include John Behen, Johnny Ringo, the McLaury brothers and Ike Clanton.
