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.

Texas Legacy: You're the missing part.

The Texas Historical Foundation is producing the
most important and lasting tribute to the Texas
Sesquicentennial-"Texas Legacy," a monumental
sculpture by the noted Texas artist, Robert Summers.
Depicted above, this magnificent bronze will be
approximately 40 feet long, 20 feet wide and 17 feet
high and will weigh some 20 tons, making it one of
the largest cast bronzes in the country. It will be

placed in the State Capitol complex in Austin, as
authorized by the 69th Texas Legislature.
You can play a part in this historic project, a unique
opportunity to express your Texas pride in a permanent
way. Your contribution of $500 or more insures that your
name will be inscribed on the Monument base, a lasting
recognition of your support that will be seen for
generations to come.
