Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

As Austin boys marched off to meet the enemy during the first months of the
Civil War, the local Soldiers' Aid Society dispatched wagon loads of clothing
and blankets to the front. This benefit concert at the capitol, featuring an origi-
nal composition titled "'The Sun kissed South," filled the concert hall and raised
$125 for the cause. Broadside (9 x 6% inches). Courlesy Barker Tlexas History
Center, University of Texas at Auslin.
