Description: Photograph of the remains of several stone buildings that are part of the remaining ruins of a Presidio ranch. The ruins are next to a road lined with small posts, visible in the lower-right corner, and desert mountains are visible in the background. The image accompanied a written speech, with the caption: "These are the ruins of the ranch house of another West Texas settler whom the land defeated. Manuel Musquiz tried to homestead in the canyon near the present town of Ft. Davis in 1854. Continued Indian raids drove him back to the security of the East" (p. 4).
