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.

Not Now

[Horses and float in parade]

Description:

Postcard of a float in a parade from behind, with horses and multiple people walking alongside. There are women sitting in the float, which is drawn by horses and covered in decorations. There is a large mast or pole on the float that has a sail attached to it. Small children wearing hats are walking behind the float carrying flags, and people observe from porches on houses in the background.
