This sketch represents Eduard Harkort's original plans for the construction of Fort Travis,
plans that were repeatedly frustrated by a shortage of materials, equipment, and labor.
Harkort's notations in the lower right-hand corner of the sketch are translated as follows:
"Height of the fortress from the bottom of the ditch = 15 [feet] Depth of the ditch = 5
[feet] Length of the firing port = 21/2 [feet] Eduard Harkort-Texas." Courtesy Strubell-
