Johnny Ringo (1850-1882) - Stories vary as to Ringo's real name, but he was known to have grown up in a good family, was well receiving a good education including attending college in Missouri. He earned a deadly reputation from numerous gunfights in Texas, New Mexico before moving on to Arizona around 1879.

 

A known cattle rustler and a deadly gunfighter, Ringo wasted no time in hooking up with the Clanton Gang, a group of outlaws commonly known as the "Cowboys" around Tombstone. Ringo himself was called "the King of the Cowboys."

 

Though he was a known antagonist of Wyatt Earp heavily involved with the Clantons, he was not a participant in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

In 1882, Ringo was found dead with a bullet in his brain. Though his death was ruled as a suicide, his gun was discovered fully loaded, and most believed it to be murder, some say by either Wyatt Earp or Doc Holliday. Ringo is buried a few yards from the tree where his body was found. The grave is located on a ranch southeast of Willcox, Arizona, owned by the Sanders family and can only be viewed with permission.

Saloon Style Photo Prints and DownloadsSaloon Style Photo Prints - What were on the walls of saloons in the Old West?  Most of the time, it was similar as what you might find today -- advertisements for liquor, beer, and tobacco. But, in those Wild West days, the walls were often filled with images of "decadent" women of the time. In our Photo Print Shop, you'll find dozens of images for decorating a real saloon or western themed restaurant, or your person home bar in a saloon style atmosphere.
