Maxim known for machine gun, but not as well for other inventions

the Sangerville Public Library

    On a small hill overlooking Dexter’s Lake Wassookeag on a June day in 1890, a gathering of townspeople watched history in the making as bullets whizzed into the lake waters at a rate of 666 per minute.
    From that location, about 10 miles from his Sangerville home, Sir Hiram Maxim’s gun entered the battlefields of World War I, and later the Russo-Japanese War, World War II, and even the battlefields of Korea and Vietnam.
    Born on Feb. 5, 1940 in a less-than-modest home on a small knoll overlooking a stream, Hiram Maxim tended sheep throughout the summer months.
