Martha "Calamity Jane" Cannary
At 23, Martha Jane Canary - the best known female gunslinger in history - was given the nickname 'Calamity Jane' after showing insane bravery in the face of enemy fire. Calamity Jane literally gave zero fucks. She fought alongside general Custer just before he died at the battle of Little Big Horn and hung out with Wild Bill Hickok who some believe was the father of her child. She got pneumonia swimming the Platte River at Fort Fetterman for the war effort and nursed victims of a smallpox epidemic in 1878. She was so hardcore that the entire Sioux Indian tribe agreed en masse to leave her alone. But I'm sure it took real courage to travel for your study abroad program!
