About the Collection

Illustrating late-19th-century Fort Worth, the Daily Democrat bemoaned "Hell's Half-Acre," and documented Fort Worth's gradual rise in status from cowtown to crossroads to booming financial city.

The Democrat was published until the late 1880s, after which it closed its doors and was succeeded by the Fort Worth Gazette and the Fort Worth Morning Register.

Digital access to The Daily Democrat was generously supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under a TexTreasures grant.
