About the location of this painting:
In the mid to late 1800’s, the Arizona Territory was home and an escape route out of the Territory of New Mexico for infamous outlaws such as: William “Curly Bill” Brocius, Clanton Gang aka “The Cowboys,” Pete Spence, Johnny Ringo, “High Fives Gang” — Black Jack Christian, and other lawless individuals.
Lawmen such as Wyatt Earp and his brothers, Doc Holliday, Harry Wheeler, and later the Arizona Rangers (created in 1901) would have the difficult task of keeping the peace and bringing such outlaws to justice or simply dispatching them to another place not on this earth. Bank and train robbers, murderers, rustlers, horse thieves, and other law breakers would travel through the vast desert surroundings of Tucson, Benson, Wilcox, Tombstone, and the like in order to escape justice. Lawmen would be hot in pursuit of them. The many trails and canyons of the surrounding desert provided shelter and concealment for these travelers to protect their whereabouts from one another during their encampment.
This painting is of a trail found in the surrounding desert of the southernmost portion of Tucson, Arizona. A trail where any of the aforementioned might have traveled through and/or settled for a night’s encampment, while on the run/chase.
