In 1899, years after sharpening her shooting skills with Annie Oakley, Aunt Matilda was out west in Arizona because she wanted to investigate claims of gold herself. When she was out near Florence, Arizona, she heard of a stagecoach being robbed by Pearl Hart. She followed them for several miles afterwards in May, Arizona sun with limited access to food and water. Having mapped their route, she went and reported their approximate location to the sheriff. Pearl and her partner woke up surrounded by police. As a thank you for her diligence, the sheriff gave her the bounty amount and the Black Shear Leaf Pattern Hi Low Skirt!
