The unseen Vice President is never named, but places the date of this adventure to be sometime between March 1869 and November 1875. In President Grant's first term (1869-1873), this second-highest office was held by Schuyler "the Smiler" Colfax, who was not renominated due to his questionable business associations. His place was taken by Henry Wilson, who served until his death from a stroke on November 22, 1875. The United States had no Vice President for the final 15 months and a few weeks of Grant's term, which ended March 4, 1877. See more
The Skull Judge (mis)quotes from the Pledge of Allegiance, which was conceived and written in 1892, long after President Grant (often mentioned in the series) left office in 1877. He uses words that were not included in the Pledge until it was rewritten several times over the years. The phrase "under God," for example, was first added in 1954. See more
