O.K. Corral

Update to the 1880s page in the Timeline: the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, which was for some reason not added earlier. The books I've read on this (including the entertaining but not necessarily factual memoir I Married Wyatt Earp) are of course more detailed than the web site to which I linked on the page, but that site does give a decent overview. The facts of the fight have always been in dispute, and I had wanted perhaps to link to a site maintained by a Clanton descendant, but that site is so noisy that it deterred reading. (Those interested can find it through a simple search on Google.)
