Annie Oakley
Annie Oakley
Annie Oakley {1860-1926} - born Phoebe Ann Moses - learned to shoot in the woods of her native Ohio. A leading attraction in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show from 1885 to 1901, "Little Sure Shot" could hit a dime in midair and shoot through the edge of a playing card from a distance of 30 paces. During World War I, she gave shooting demonstrations to troops in training and helped raise money for the Red Cross. After she and her husband moved back to Ohio, Oakley wrote her memoirs, which were published in newspapers across the country.
