I would like to query the wording of a fact:

Ethel Rosenberg - the only woman executed during peacetime.

Worldwide, plenty of women have been executed during peacetime, and of course in the USA.

I suspect that the original intention was: the only woman executed for espionage in the USA during peacetime.

I haven't double-checked this, as I got a bit queasy scrolling through execution websites.
