The Legendary Ladies--Unconventional Women of the West

 

Tonight we meet  Annie Oakley,  Lillie Hitchcock Coit - Patroness of Firefighters, Klolndike Kate - Queen of the Klondike and Katherine Lee Bates , who wrote the words to "America the Beautiful" while visiting Pikes Peak in 1893.  We will have the words to America the Beautiful on screen, perhaps we can all sing-along!

These Unconventional Women will delight and entertain us, as they tell about their contribution to the West and history. 

The Legendary Ladies, founded in 1992, grew from early members’ mutual love of women’s history, costumes, and performance.  Known for the first thirteen years as The Shady Ladies, the group participated in a variety of parades and festivals and developed their signature performance, “Unconventional Women of the West.”

In 2005, members voted for a change of name to The Legendary Ladies and also decided to focus more on historical performance.  As a result, most members have researched and written scripts for at least three different women from the time period of the mid-1800’s to the mid-1900’s.

Our mission is to promote the history of women who made unique contributions to the West.
