|Basin countries||Dominican Republic|
The river got the name "Massacre River" because it was the site of the killing of thirty French buccaneers by Spanish settlers in 1728. The name became newly popular after being the site of many killings during the Parsley Massacre--though the event was not, contrary to popular belief, the origin of its name.
