I love this Annie Oakley vintage sign. Her story is one of my favorites.
Annie Oakley (Phoebe Ann Mosey 8/13/1860 – 11/3/31926) was an American sharpshooter & exhibition shooter. Oakley starred in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, the first American female superstar. Using a .22 caliber rifle, at 90 ft Oakley reputedly could split a playing card edge-on & put 5 or 6 more holes in it before it touched the ground.
Born on August 13, 1860, Annie Oakley gained fame for her unparalleled shooting skills, later becoming the star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show for 17 years. By age 15, Oakley paid off the mortgage for her mother's home by shooting small game for a local grocery store.
