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.

Description: Slide of an outdoor scene identified as Cow Creek. A sloping mountainside is seen in the background, with multiple, lush trees scattered on its ground. A wide body of water leads up to it, interrupted in its downward stream by protruding mounds of sand and rocks. Small bushes flank each side.
