Power point #1 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Key Figures – Buffalo Bill and contains 23 editable slides:

William Frederick Cody or “Buffalo Bill,” was born February 26, 1846, near LeClaire IA. He lived a very colorful life during one of the most interesting times in U. S. History. He became a Pony Express Rider at the age of 14. He served in the American Civil War as a scout for the Union.

After the war he became an Indian Fighter in the Old West and a Buffalo Hunter, bragging that he had killed more than 4,280 himself. This feat earned “Buffalo Bill Cody” his nickname, and his status as an Old West legend but later, criticism for he and others who slaughtered buffalo “needlessly” which destroyed the primary food source for many Native American Tribes.

His colorful Wild West Show, which came to be known as “Buffalo Bill’s” Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World, evolved into an international institution and made him one of the world’s first global celebrities. The show was a circus-like extravaganza that toured widely for 30 years in the United States and later in Europe. It had a cast of hundreds, featuring fancy-shooting, hard-riding cowboys and yelling Indians, along with re-creations of a buffalo hunt, the capture of the Deadwood, SD, a stagecoach, and a Pony Express ride. Besides Buffalo Bill himself, the Wild West show starred sharpshooter Annie Oakley and, for one run, Chief Sitting Bull.

Buffalo Bill continued to perform in his Wild West show until 1916, although at age 71 he often had to be helped onto his horse backstage. While Buffalo Bill’s exhibition remained extremely popular in the United States and abroad, in the end—largely through poor investments, including his purchase of an unproductive gold mine—he lost the fortune he had made in show business. He died January 10, 1917, in Denver, CO.

Power point #2 is entitled Western Expansion in the United States – Key Figures – Annie Oakley and contains 22 editable slides:

Annie Oakley was a renowned markswoman and star who worked for years with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Born Phoebe Ann Moses on August 13, 1860, in Darke County, OH, she would be known later as “Annie Oakley.” She came from humble beginnings but performed before royalty and presidents. Moses developed her superb marksmanship abilities as a teen, earning enough money to pay off the mortgage for her mother's home.

She married fellow marksman Frank Butler in 1876 and would later become a star attraction for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show for years, renowned for unparalleled shooting tricks. She is remembered as one of the leading women of the American West. A revered global figure, Annie Oakley retired in 1913 and died in OH on November 3, 1926, just 18 days before her husband’s death.

From her humble roots this remarkable woman is remembered as a western folk hero, American legend, and icon. Throughout her career, Oakley maintained her dignity and propriety while quietly proving that she was superior to most men on the shooting range. She was totally dedicated to the love of her life Frank Butler. She heavily supported orphanages and children’s causes throughout her life and consistently sought ways to reach out to other less fortunate people.

Thanks to Hollywood and history, the legend of Annie Oakley endures into the 21st century through motion pictures, television, on the stage, in history books, and in museums. Most notable is the Irving Berlin musical Annie Get Your Gun (1946), based on her life story, with the initial run starring Ethel Merman and later Broadway incarnations starring Reba McEntire and Bernadette Peters.
