A fascinating look at the real Annie Oakley in an historic account that separates fact from fiction.
She was described as the “greatest woman rifle shot.” A star attraction of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, Oakley thrilled audiences around the world with her daring shooting feats. A champion in a man’s sport, she changed ideas about the abilities of women in the 19th century. Her fame and fortune came from her skill with guns, yet she was a Quaker. This presentation dispels myth to reveal the real Annie Oakley. Charlotte has traveled into seven states the summers of 2015 and 2016 following the journey of Annie. She has met with museum curators and Annie’s family members to delve into the Oakley history. Always on Target: Adventurous Annie Oakley was released Easter of 2016 and From Phoebe to Famous: Annie Oakley a Legacy of Giving is coming early 2017.
