    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">dwsanderson</a>:<br />Home of the great Civil War humorist Charles Farrar Browne aka Artemus Ward, Lincoln's favorite, a necessary site given President Obama's interest in Lincoln. Photo from an early postcard, the house still very much the same, on the Green at Waterford, Maine. Artemus is buried nearby at Elm Vale Cemetary. He confirmed his lineage: "I was born in Maine, of parents," he said.
