"We saw the gangly parademic with the Wyatt Earp mustache come out first"

Wyatt Earp (1848 - 1929) was an American frontier lawman most notable for his role in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. In this infamous Western shootout, Wyatt fought with his two brothers Morgan and Virgil and their friend Doc Holliday against four local cowboys. The gunfire lasted less than a minute and killed three of the cowboys. Wyatt and Virgil also became known for their vendetta against those they believed killed Morgan. Despite the fact Virgil was the more experienced sheriff, constable and marshall, Earp rose to national fame following the publication of an embellished biography written by Stuart Lake in 1931. Earp became engrained in popular culture, inspiring numerous television programmes, films and books about lawmen and outlaws.http://artofmanliness.com/2008/11/02/20-manliest-mustaches-and-beards-from-facial-hair-history/
