In 1890 the Tombstone Epitaph reported six gunslingers shot down a mythical Thunderbird

I got sucked into the fascinating story of the Tombstone Epitaph's 'Thunderbird.' On April 26, 1890 the paper published a story of six gunmen bringing down a legendary Thunderbird. More interesting than a big bird is that many folks claim they saw a photo taken of the flying monster, but the collective memory seems quite impossible.
