About Annie Oakley
Annie Oakley was an American sharpshooter, a person who is highly trained at firing firearms accurately, and exhibition shooter. At the age of 15 years old, Oakley’s gift was recognized as she won a shooting contest against a traveling-show marksman named Frank E. Butler. Despite the victory, Oakley’s shot also won her Butler’s heart because she later married him. A few years after, the couple joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. Then Oakley’s professional reputation raised to the peak. She became a well-known international sharpshooter star, performing before royalty and heads of state.
Oakley also was variously known as “Miss Annie Oakley”, “Little Sure Shot”, “Little Miss Sure Shot”, “Watanya Cicilla”, “Phoebe Anne Oakley”, “Mrs. Annie Oakley”, “Mrs. Annie Butler”, and “Mrs. Frank Butler”.
