Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a parade float that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The float is mounted on a streetcar truck and decorated to depict a scene from Detroit's history. A sign at the right end of the float notes "15. Cass Breaking His Sword." Five men, dressed in military uniforms of the War of 1812, are standing near the center of the float which has a fort stockade and windmill on the left and a large rock on the right. The parade is moving along a residential street with houses and trees in the background, but the street name is not known. A man in an Indian costume is standing at the far left side of the photo.
