Born in 1860, Annie Oakley became one of the best-loved and most famous performers in the world. After learning to shoot at age 9, to put food on the family table, she went on to amaze audiences everywhere with her sharpshooting, horse-riding, action-packed performances.

In an age when most women stayed at home, Annie traveled the world, forging a powerful new image of the American woman.
