Description -  Martha Jane Canary or Cannary (May 1, 1852 - August 1, 1903), better known as Calamity Jane, frontierswoman and professional scout, known for her claim of being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok and fighting against Native Americans.  Late in her life, she appeared in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition. She is said to have always exhibited kindness and compassion to others, especially to the sick and needy. This facet of her character, contrasted with her daredevil ways, helped make her a noted frontier figure.  She was also known for her habit of wearing men's attire.
