Virgil Earp arrives in Tombstone with his youngest brother Morgan
Earp after his younger brother Wyatt
had asked them to come to Tombstone so they could go into private business together,
leaving the thankless and low-paying task of law enforcement behind. However,
it doesn't take long for the lawlessness of the town to bother Virgil and following
the controversial shooting death of U.S. Marshal Fred White while he was trying
to disarm a drunken Curly
Bill Brocius, Virgil becomes Marshal. He soon enlists Morgan as a deputy
much to the disgust of Wyatt.
After the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, the Cowboys target the Earps and one
stormy night, they first attack the Earp women, then shoot Virgil in the arm
and finally fatally shoot Morgan in the back. As a result of the shooting Virgil
loses the use of his arm. He soon leaves town with Morgan's body, while Wyatt
Holliday remain behind to exact revenge on the Cowboys.
