DEADWOOD S. Dakota.



The contemporary view doesn't do the town justice. Deadwood had a hard patch - a long, hard patch - but it's come back nicely, thanks to the desire of people to put money into machines with no guarantee whatsoever they will get anything, except a diversion to consume the endless hours of daily life. Yes, gambling! And tourism from folks who watched the TV show, and want to see where those marvelous characters swore and shot each other and whored around and fell in the mud and threw up.

There's a Seth Bullock Hotel, because there was a Seth Bullock. As for Al Swearengen - you'll have to go to the museum for his remnants.
