One day, Annie Oakley entered a shooting contest where she met and beat her husband. They married and later joined the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in 1885. She became famous as the, 'Little Girl of the Western Plains'. Annie Oakley had a long career with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show where she became one of our most beloved American Legends.
