VIDEOS ~ Annie Oakley ~ Shooting Demonstration ~ November 1, 1894
We recently borrowed a biography of Annie Oakley, (part of the Step-into-Reading Series), from the library, which sparked our interest in this "Woman of the West." It's amazing that Thomas Edison managed to capture a shooting demonstration on film.
Isobel was trying to decide who was better with a gun ~ her Stepdad John, or Annie Oakley. Finally she decided that John was a better sharpshooter, as he was alive, and Annie had died long ago. While discussing this with her Grandma (over the telephone), Isobel said, "Skeletons can't do very much."
You've got to admit, she does have a point!
