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.

[Rock Wall Receding into Background]

Description:

Slide of a rock wall built on an unkempt grassy area. The wall has an uneven height, composed of rocks of varying colors and size, and appears to be quite long. It recedes into the background at a sharp angle and appears to meet a tree seen in the distance. Accompanying information assigns the name "Black's Fort" to the location, but there is no other significant information supplied.
