The Maine


The above photo is that of a lithograph published in 1898. The original painting is by F.N. Atwood and was painted in 1895. It belonged to Brigadier General H. A. Wheeler.

The original is believed to have hung in the White House during Hardings Presidency. If anyone knows of its present location Mr. Alan Smith of Hong Kong would like to know about it. The Artist was his wife's Great Great Grandfather. His e-mail address is: Alan Smith
