Synopsis
Story of Lucretia Mott (1793-1880), a Quaker minister and anti-slavery activist who used her eloquence to champion equal rights for women and blacks.

Indexer Notes

Credits verified by Jerry Bails. "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.

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

As her friends toast with wine, Wonder Woman opts for fruit juice. At story's end, it is explained Nifty's desire for revenge was powering the Karma Monster. In this chapter, Steve does not remember his later reincarnations, knowing only that he is Stevus, Roman gladiator.
