Annie Oakley 1860-1926. Annie began trapping at a young age, and shooting and hunting by age eight to support her siblings and her widowed mother. She sold the hunted game for money to locals in Greenville, as well as restaurants and hotels in southern Ohio. Her skill eventually paid off the mortgage on her mother's farm when Annie was 15. Her life story is amazing.

Oakley was recreating or practicing one of her performance routines. An assistant would launch a glass ball into the air, Oakley would jump over a table, bare-handed, grab her gun and shoot the ball out of the air before it hit the ground.
