Brown Bess

Brown Bess[1]

A Brown Bess was a type of musket that was used during the 1770s, especially during the Revolutionary War.

After stepping out of the time elevator and arriving in 1776, Wonder Woman and the Atom encountered military officers from the Continental Army that were armed with Brown Bess muskets.

General George Washington, who was the commander-in-chief of that particular army, ordered them to be seized, so that they could stand trial for treason after the Battle of Trenton concluded. The general was under the false idea that the two superheroes were foreign spies.

Wonder Woman uses her Lasso of Truth to rope one of the musketeers, which causes him to drop his Brown Bess. The two superheroes then make a run for it back to the time elevator, in the hopes of getting back to 1980, but they instead end up in 1667.[2]
