Summary: "They weren't born in Colorado and only Doc Holliday died in Colorado. However, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp (whose lives were very closely intertwined) spent a considerable portion of their careers in Colorado. Bat and Doc were involved in the Royal Gorge Railroad War in 1978-79. Bat was a peace officer in Trinidad, Colorado. Wyatt and Doc came to Pueblo, Colorado just a few months after the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Doc was arrested in Denver, then the trio traveled their various ways all over Colorado's mining towns including Silverton, Leadville, Gunnison, Trinidad, Pueblo, and Aspen. Doc died November 8, 1887 at Glenwood Springs, but Bat was back in 1892 during the Creede mining boom and continued to hang around as a gunfighter and fight promoter before leaving Colorado for good in 1900."
