Annie Oakley was born on August 13, 1860.  She was named Phoebe Ann by her mother, but called Annie by her sisters. She was the toast of Victorian London, New York, and Paris. She was "adopted" by Indian chief Sitting Bull, charmed the Prince of Prussia, and entertained the likes of Oscar Wilde and Queen Victoria. Annie Oakley excelled in a man's world by doing what she loved, and won fame and fortune as the little lady from Ohio who never missed a shot.

Born Phoebe Ann Mosey, and far better know as Annie Oakley, was called “Watanya Cicilla” by Sitting Bull, a fellow performer in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. That name became “Little Sure Shot” in the public advertisements.
