Martha Jane Canary or Cannary (May 1, 1852 – August 1, 1903), better known as Calamity Jane, was an American frontiers woman and professional scout known for her claim of being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok and fighting Indians. She is said to have also exhibited kindness and compassion, especially to the sick and needy. This contrast helped make her a noted frontier figure.
