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.
