I invite people to submit who you think is this wonderful woman. All correct answers will be put in
a drawing for a special treat!
This time we are taking the Way Back Machine for this month’s famous woman...
Born in Missouri in 1852, she was orphaned by 12 years of age. She dressed in
men’s clothes and did whatever work was to be had.
She drifted to Deadwood, South Dakota where she met up with Wild Bill Hickok and
her legend began. In later years she toured with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. She
was a skilled sharpshooter on horseback. It’s said that if you messed with her you
were “courting Calamity”.
