From the Richmond Whig, 4/28/1865

RICHMOND AGAIN TAKEN. - Richmond has had the rare honor of being taken twice in one campaign, after a resistance of four years - first by the United States army under General Grant; secondly by an honor of photographers, who have taken every point and object of interest worth the taking. The arts of war triumphed first - those of peace afterwards. So with all the great Generals and officers taken by General Grant. No sooner are they at liberty upon parole than the lying-in-wait photographer rushes upon them, and with one shot from his camera folds them up in his portfolio - taken again. Such is the fate of notoriety.
