Calamity Jane (May 1, 1852 – August 1, 1903) was a frontier woman renowned for her sharp-shooting, whiskey-swilling and cross-dressing ways and one of the more colorful characters of the West. Few substantiated facts are known about Calamity Jane’s life, but much is known about the legend.
Calamity Jane (born Martha Jane Canary) had a reputation for being able to handle a horse better than most men and shoot like a cowboy.
