Boot Hill Cemetery, Tombstone, Arizona USA
Arizona
This is the world famous Boot Hill Cemetery of Tombstone, Arizona, “The Town to Tough to Die.” This is a real cemetery, not a fake tourist attraction. The Cemetery was started in 1878 on a hill just north and west of the present town of Tombstone. It is the final resting place for many of the town’s earliest pioneers. Tragically, many of the internments were due to the deceased having met a violent death. Where it has been possible, the original headstones have been verified and replaced with modern substitutes using city records and charts. The term “boot hill” refers to the fact that many of the original inhabitants both cowboys and miners died with their boots on. There are at least twenty-four other towns in the U.S. with boot hill cemeteries. Among those buried in Boot Hill are the three men killed at the famous gunfight at O.K. Corral.

    More About USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
