Deadwood’s Famous Calamity Jane
Late in her life, she appeared in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show and at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition. She is said to have exhibited compassion to others, especially to the sick and needy. This facet of her character contrasted with her daredevil ways and helped to make her a noted frontier figure. She was also known for her habit of wearing men’s attire.
Jane was involved in several campaigns in the long-running military conflicts with Native Americans. She claims she acquired her nickname from Capt. Egan when she successful saved him after being shot and brought him back to the Fort. A popular belief is that she instead acquired it as a result of her warnings to men that to offend her was to “court calamity”. It is possible that “Jane” was not part of her name until the nickname was coined for her. It is certain, however, that she was known by that nickname by 1876.
In 1876, Calamity Jane settled in the area of Deadwood, South Dakota, in the Black Hills. There she became friends with Dora DuFran, the Black Hills’ leading madam, and was occasionally employed by her. Jane tried to become friendly with Wild Bill Hickok and Charlie Utter. She traveled to see them in Deadwood in Utter’s wagon train. She arrived the day after Wild Bill was murdered in a card game. She never met up with Wild Bill.
