This wooden monument stands above a grave covered in rocks in Tombstone, Arizona’s Boot Hill. The text on the back explains: “John Heath. Taken from county jail and lynched by a Bisbee mob. He was hanged from a telegraph pole.”
The message scrawled on the back reads: “Having a nice time – wish you were here! Doing much better than John Heath.”
It’s postmarked with a 3-cent Liberty stamp, which was issued between 1954-1961.
