Annie Oakley, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Annie Oakley (birth name Phoebe Ann Mozee, August 13, 1860 – November 3, 1926) was a United States sharpshooter in the American West.

Oakley began hunting at the age of nine to support her siblings and her widowed mother. She soon became known as a marksman. After defeating a sideshow marksman named Frank E. Butler (1850-1926) aka Francis Butler, at a contest in Cincinnati, Ohio, she married him in 1876. They lived in Cincinnati for a time, and it is widely believed that she took her stage name from the city's neighborhood of Oakley, where they resided. She later became Butler's assistant in his travelling show.

They joined the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show in 1885, and she was advertised as "Little Miss Sure Shot", a nickname given to her by Sitting Bull. Oakley had such good aim that she knocked the ashes off a cigar held by Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany.
