In 1885, Annie Oakley began an association with Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West show -- despite some hesitation on Cody's part about hiring a woman. The five-foot-tall sharpshooter's star was on the rise -- that season, she performed in front of 150,000 people in 40 cities. The following year, the show entertained almost 360,000 people at its summer location on Staten Island, New York, and soon Oakley's fame was known far and wide. She would be a top attraction with the Wild West for 17 years.
