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. Endorf’s presentation dispels myths to reveal the real Annie Oakley. We are looking forward to hearing all about the life and legacy of Annie Oakley. Please join the fun!
