Cowboy Did You Know?
Precise figures of the value of the gold and
silver which was mined in Tombstone are difficult to come by. In
1883, writer Patrick Hamilton estimated that the total value of
gold and silver taken from Tombstone during the first four years
of activity was $25,000,000. In 1902, W. P. Blake came up with
figures which are believed to be much more accurate at $3,000,000
($66,000,000 in 2010 dollars). As a consequence of the vast amount
of riches which were being distributed, lawsuits started to become
very prevalent. Between 1880 and 1885 courts were clogged with
activity, with most cases having to do with valuable properties.
