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

[A Blacksmith Shop]

An open covered area is attached to the building on the left; underneath its roof is a horse cart. In front of the building are two men. The man to the left is standing next to a horse with his arm draped on its neck. He is holding a tool in his other hand. One other horse and a horse cart are partially visible in the background.
