Baker's Blunder

Trivia Question:
What was the original name for the Baker River that runs from Wentworth to Plymouth NH?

"Bend in the Baker"

Order this poster of the Baker River, or chose cards or prints of the same image

Answer: The Asquamchemaukee (spelled variously).

Editors note: Colonel Baker navigated his way up the river where he came upon a village of Native American's and, without provocation, attacked and obliterated the village. As is often the case, to the victor went the spoils and Baker's name has been attached to the river ever since.

"Indian Pony above the Aspen"

Order this framed image or cards, posters of Indian Pony.
