Oakley, Annie

  1. Oakley, Annie (
      Provides two pictures and a short biography. "She could handle a rifle or a six-gun with an artistry unsurpassed by that of any human being before her time or, probably, since. And when she appeared with Sitting Bull and other notables in Colonel Cody's Wild West Show, she thrilled your father and mother -- not as Phoebe Anne Oakley Moses but as 'Little Sure Shot,' the immortal Annie Oakley." (Taken from a U.S. Government Savings Bonds advertisement in 1955.) 9-05

  2. Oakley, Annie (
      Provides three pictures and a detailed biography. "Annie Oakley, a champion shooter and star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, is remembered as a western folk hero and American legend. She has been the subject of numerous books. Television shows, movies, and stage plays have been written about her life and her exploits with a gun. Some of those are fictionalized accounts. Others are more accurate. However, the myths and legends that have developed around Annie Oakley have become somewhat more important that the actual facts, which are considerable in their own right. Among the most famous are the various movie and stage productions of Annie Get Your Gun." 9-05
