Parade float #8 in the Maine Centennial Celebration parade has the title "The Massacre of Dummer." It looks to be a reenactment of a slaughter or battle. Dummer's War, also known as the Three Years War, lasted from 1722-1725. The war was a series of battles between New England and the Wabanaki Confederacy over Maine Frontier, and there were numerous "bushwackings" which this float could be based on.Show Details
