Annie Oakley Framed Print. This is a picture from 1899, she would have been 39 years old.
Annie Oakley (born Phoebe Ann Mosey; August 13, 1860 – November 3, 1926) was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Her talent first came to light when at age 15 she won a shooting match against traveling-show marksman Frank E. Butler, whom she later married.
The couple joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West show a few years later. Oakley became a renowned international star, performing before royalty and heads of state.
✨ Annie Oakley Trivia
★ Sharpshooter/entertainer who was a major star with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show for many years.
★ Inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1993.
★ Has a celebration in her honor called Annie Oakley Days.
For many years, the cause of Annie Oakley's death was given as pernicious anemia. A recent article in A&E Biography magazine, however, suggests that it may, in fact, have been the long-term effects of lead poisoning from handling so much live ammunition over a long career.
Her husband of almost a half century, fellow marksman Frank Butler, was so crushed by her death that he simply refused to eat afterwards, dying ten days later.
During her time with the Buffalo Bill Show (see William F. Cody), she was adopted by another performer with the show, Chief Sitting Bull, who named her Little Sure Shot. Reportedly, while she gave her shooting exhibitions, he would be standing off to the side, shaking his head in admiration of her talents.
✨ Annie Oakley Quotes:
“I ain't afraid to love a man. I ain't afraid to shoot him either.”
“Aim at a high mark and you'll hit it. No, not the first time, nor the second time. Maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect.”
“After traveling through fourteen foreign countries and appearing before all the royalty and nobility I have only one wish today. That is that when my eyes are closed in death that they will bury me back in that quiet little farm land where I was born.”
