Indexer Notes

Credits verified by Jerry Bails (October, 2005).

The Motts left the Quakers in 1827 because the Quakers disapproved of her activism.

"Sal-Pete" signature spotted by Keith Chandler. "Sal-Pete" was later used by Sal Trapani and Pete Morisi, but this predates their work in comics by a decade.

As her friends toast with wine, Wonder Woman opts for fruit juice.
