Phoebe Ann Mosey, aka Annie Oakley, was a sharpshooter and performance shooter. Her amazing talent led to a marquee role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, which made her the first American female superstar. Using a .22 caliber rifle at 90 feet, Oakley could split a playing card edge-on and put five or six more holes in it before it reached the ground. Annie was born on this day (August 13) in the year 1860.
