A Heritage Costumes Exclusive
The Gunfight at the O.K Corral is a legend of the Wild West—the tale of cowboy outlaws riding into Tombstone, facing off in the middle of the street with lawmen, is a true and tremendous tale from the late 1800s. Marshals Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, along with other men, won that storied shootout, chasing out the dangerous cowboys and cementing their place in history. Yet Doc Holliday had a life filled with truly wild adventures throughout the western United States.
Of all the famed gunslingers of the Wild West, only one earned his nickname not based on his rebellious lifestyle, but his education: Doc Holliday. Born John Henry Holliday, “Doc” gained a new name thanks to his degree in dentistry, which he earned at age 21. For years, he practiced as a dentist in Atlanta, but after being diagnosed with tuberculosis Doc moved to the Southwest in hopes of curing himself with warmer weather. In Arizona, Doc Holliday changed his profession, becoming a gambler (a profession quite respected in the 19th century).
In his new career as a gambling man, Doc Holliday found himself in confrontations often. During one in Texas, Holliday saved Wyatt Earp’s life and the two formed a lifelong friendship. In 1880, Holliday followed Earp to Las Vegas, New Mexico, and Prescott, Arizona. When the men made their way to Tombstone, Doc Holliday was deputized along with Wyatt Earp—and soon after, Doc Holliday was fighting alongside his friend at the O.K. Corral. After that storied gunfight, Earp and Holliday joined together as a federally deputized duo who pursued outlaw cowboys across the West, continuing until Holliday died from tuberculosis.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes Famous People collection of quality costume clothing, this children’s Doc Holliday costume is authentic to the 1800s and the attire worn by the storied gunman of the O.K. Corral himself. You’ll look just like the famous gunfighter when you don this historically accurate costume set.
