In 1929, Tombstone, Arizona was but a mere shell of the thriving
city it had become. The silver mines have been closed since 1912,
when Arizona became the 48th state in the union. World War I was

Tombstone were beginning to see the potential of a new "industry"
for their community, TOURISM! Follow me now to the celebration now
known as "HELLDORADO"
