Join us as Heidi Osselaer shares with us the story of Arizona’s deadliest gunfight!
Arizona’s deadliest shoot-out happened not in 1881, but in 1918 as the United States plunged into World War I, and not in Tombstone, but in a remote canyon in the Galiuro Mountains northeast of Tucson. Whereas previous accounts have portrayed the gun battle as a quintessential western feud, historian Heidi J. Osselaer explodes that myth and demonstrates how the national debate over U.S. entry into the First World War divided society at its farthest edges, creating the political and social climate that led to this tragedy.
Heidi Osselaer is the author of Winning Their Place: Arizona Women in Politics, 1883–1950 and teaches history at Arizona State University.
