  1. Tombstone Thunderbird

    The Town Too Tough to Die is a town of legends, but did you also know it's a town with its own, strange mystery too?

    On April 26, 1890, the Tombstone Epitaph (Links to Library of Congress Archive) ran a story one would hardly begin to believe was true... yet the story of the Tombstone Thunderbird has endured over 100 years. The story as printed in the paper reads as follows:
