Opposite page: The Civil War dramatically altered the lives of Hal Mason and
his wife, Jane. Prior to the war, both were slaves on farms near Hornsby's Bend,
about ten miles east of Austin. Hal Mason saw the war firsthand, accompanying
his owner, Jesse F. Burditt, as a body servant while Burditt fought in Arkansas.
By the mid-188os, when photographer S. B. Hill of Austin made this photo-
graph (8 x 6Y3/ inches), Hal Mason had become assistant jailer at the Travis
County jail. Courtesy Barker Texas History Center, Unwevers of Texas at Austin.
