      TTR was not canceled this year. In fact it was held two weeks ago, we had a record turnout this year. The schedule of events and agenda is posted at the top of this webpage. Our theme and topic was... more
      • I have always been fascinated by all those holdups and if there was any organization to them. Certainly Holliday was involved at some level I believe. He was friends with all the participants. I have ... more

          Hello Bruce, I too have always been convinced Holliday had much to do with the Benson stage attempt. A key factor was his close association with seasoned stage robbers; they all knew each other or... more

            The alibi of Doc renting a horse to go to Charleston for a card game and it was cancelled stinks. Holliday was reportedly almost broke and had to pawn a watch to play in Tombstone that night. John... more

            Ike was asked in court if he knew the stage murderers and had they stayed at his ranch. Remember they stole nothing, only murdered two people. He said he did and they had stopped at his ranch but he... more

              I am always so pleased to hear you jump in here as I think you are sitting on something interesting, that as you hint, needs to come to the surface. I wish your Ggrandfather had kept a personal... more
        • Bfrey, what brings you to this conclusion? Randie O'Neal, Tue Nov 13 00:23
          I could see how he might have been, but how, to what extent and why? He likely had access to the schedules (most would) and given his association with the Earps, possibly detailed knowledge about the ... more

            Randie - The beauty of TTR being also a mini-roundup of the Wild West History Association is that we can "pipe off" some of the presentations into articles for the WWHA Journal. So - sooner or later... more
