When we think of role models, we like to think of active people. People that got up and did something to change the course of their lives and many others. While some talk, others walk and let their walking do the talking for them. One such role model and pretty much all-American badass went by the name Annie Oakley. The famed sharpshooter is a true inspiration to any and all Americans who actually started from the bottom, and rose to prominence.Annie (born Phoebe Ann Mosey) did not have a typical childhood. She spent roughly two years being abused and mistreated in near slave-like conditions by a family that had promised to pay and provide her with an education. It was a lie. They were some real assholes, but Annie Oakley persevered and eventually returned home. She never named the family though, that says a lot about her character.Let's fast forward a little bit to the cool stuff.When Annie was 15 a traveling trick shooter by the name of Frank E. Butler came to town and issued a challenge. Little Annie Oakley came out and put that man to shame.
