16 MARCH 1935
SOLDIERS OF WAR OF 1812 TREE — ALAMO GARDEN
SAN ANTONIO, BEXAR COUNTY, TEXAS

 

On the south side of the Alamo chapel, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library is located along the inside of the outer wall marking the boundary of the Alamo compound. At the left front corner, in front of the entrance to this library, is a huge live oak tree dedicated to “the Soldiers of the War of 1812 who fought for Texas liberty.” The marker is a red granite block about 2 feet tall with an arrowhead shaped bronze plaque attached. It is located at the base of a now very large live oak tree. The dedication marker reads:
