Each week we scour the web for interesting and historic documents that catch our eye. This week’s image surfaced while we were doing a little background searching for our Grant of the Week on the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. We give you the Annie Oakley, record-setting sharpshooter, posing contently with a rifle given to her by Buffalo Bill.
