The Valley-Westside War POD: Unknown Relevant POD: 1967
Type of Appearance:
Annie Oakley (August 13, 1860 – November 3, 1926), born Phoebe Ann Mosey, was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Oakley's amazing talent and timely rise to fame led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, which propelled her to become the first American female superstar.
More than a century after the Russian-American War devastated the world in 1967, Annie Oakley's name was remembered in the Valley, but her whole life was forgotten, and her identity was conflated with the comic strip character "Little Orphan Annie". Moreover, the Valley believed that "Little Orphan Annie Oakley" had been a trainrobber, and that Jesse James had been her partner in crime. While the two were finally caught, Annie escaped justice by marrying Judge Warbucks.
