Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane - Martha Jane Canary Burke, Frontierswoman (1852-1903). Expert with a horse and rifle, and often clad in men's clothes. Jane warned thet to offend her was to court calamity. She was associated with the 7th Cavalry and scouted for Lt. Col. George Custer. During the 1880's Jane travelled with several Wild West shows. She enjoyed men and alcohol and led a rip-roaring life from Kansas to Montana. Thank you very much for this card, Sheila!
