In the late 19th century, the suffix "time" was often used to denote a particular style of music such as waltz-time, march-time, or jig-time. Rag-time was short for "ragging or "ragged time," an uneven, syncopated music created by black entertainers. Many Americans were introduced to ragtime music at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 where they also witnessed the exceptional sharpshooting skill of a woman named Annie Oakley. Her starring role in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show propelled her to become the first American superstar.
