Annie Oakley (August 13, 1860 – November 3, 1926) 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. Oakley's most famous trick is being able to repeatedly split a playing card, edge-on, and put several more holes in it before it could touch the ground, while using a .22 at 90 feet.

Shedding the Cross of Polygamy
She did the unthinkable—divorcing the powerful leader of the Mormon Church, a man labeled a “living prophet” who was believed to speak directly with God. But Ann Eliza Young could not tolerate her position as “Wife No. 19” to Brigham Young, and in her rebellion, she exposed the horrors of polygamy. She was born Ann Eliza Webb on September 3, 1844, in Nauvoo, Illinois, a settlement founded by Mormons.

an old document with writing on it
The city forced evictions when houses outside the red-light district were deemed “disorderly.” The ordinance cited in these two letters, 4434 C.S [center image], was passed in 1890 and preceded the Storyville ordinance. These eviction notices appear to have been generated in some way by George L’Hote’s lawsuit against the city. [Orleans Parish Civil District Court. L’Hote v. City of New Orleans, docket #54533]

It was later discovered that a street light reflecting off the tomb gave it a reddish glow, lending credence to the rumors of the haunting. Josie Arlington's body was later moved to an unknown location within the same cemetery.
