SYCAMORE - The Mohawk Historical Society is sponsoring a program, "The Life and Times of Annie Oakley," at 7 p.m. Thursday at Sycamore United Methodist Church, 211 N. Sycamore Ave., Sycamore.
The event is free and is to be presented by historian Marnie Hill of Upper Sandusky.
Born Phoebe Ann Moses, Annie Oakley (Aug. 13, 1860 Nov. 3, 1926) was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Oakley's talent led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, which propelled her to become the first American female superstar.
Oakley was born in a cabin near North Star in Darke County.
One of Oakley's most famous tricks was splitting a playing card repeatedly, edge-on at 90 feet, with a .22 caliber rifle, and putting several more holes in the card before it could touch the ground.
