The US Marshals Service is an agency that is part of the Justice  Department. They are responsible for the protection of court officials,  judicial buildings and the effective functioning of the US judicial  system. The service also helps with the transport of prisoners, serves  arrest warrants and seeks fugitives.

The US Marshal is the oldest federal agency and its origin dates back to  a law issued by George Washington on September 24, 1789 (Judiciary  Act), which included the creation of other judicial officials. Two years  later, the first 16 agents were chosen for each one of the judicial  districts of the young nation. Over the years the agents have been in  charge of running the federal courts properly: from ensuring the  presence of witnesses, to executing orders for death sentences.

The US Marshal has been involved in most of the major historical  episodes in the US history. Before the American Civil War (1861-1865)  they had the function of catching the fugitive slaves and returning them  with their owners. During this conflict, they confiscated the  properties used as support for the cause of the Confederate States of  America. And in the following years they played an important role in the  expansion of the American West.

Among the representative names of the time is Wyatt Earp (March 19, 1848  - January 13, 1929), a marshal very famous in the American West for his  extreme harshness in dealing with those who broke the law,  incorruptible and daring in their procedures. His fame was achieved in  Tombstone (Arizona), where he was one of the protagonists of the  shooting in the O.K. Corral, along with Doc Holliday, Virgil Earp, and  Morgan Earp. He is part of the legendary figures of the American West  having inspired numerous westerns.
