Élise Rivet was the Mother Superior at the convent of “Notre Dame de Compassion”, where she not only hid refugees from the gestapo, but also used the convent to stash some weapons & ammunition for the resistance.  She was eventually caught in March of 1944 & sentenced to hard labor at Ravensbrück concentration camp.  About a year later, Élise was murdered along with thousands of others just weeks before the war ended. She volunteered to go into the gas chamber in the place of a mother.

Annie Oakley (August 13, 1860 – November 3, 1926) was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Oakley's amazing talent and timely rise to fame led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, which propelled her to become the first American female superstar.  Oakley's most famous trick is being able to repeatedly split a playing card, edge-on, and put several more holes in it before it could touch the ground, while using a .22 caliber rifle, at 90 feet.
