1. American Dancers Marker
Inscription.  The dancers who... were many young Americans...sought earnestly to act gracefully toward their partners, but in comparison with the natural charm and grace of their companions, the contrast was very obvious. This national difference was still more apparent when, as happened very seldom, Mexicans took part in the dancing. In contrast...the movements of the Americans seemed clumsy and awkward.
 
Erected 2008 by Bexar County and the city of San Antonio.
