Forgotten Texas Census: First Annual Report of the Agricultural Bureau of the Department of Agriculture, Insurance, Statistics,


A resource for teachers, this book compiled in 1887 is a unique window into understanding the people, towns, counties, railroads, and farming experiences that made up late-nineteenth-century Texas. Rare for a document of this era, this agricultural report notes, in a county-by-county format, questions of gender, labor, and ethnicity not available anywhere else.
