Regarding World Trade Center Monument. In May 2011, the New York Port Authority in New York and New Jersey signed an agreement granting Prince William County four pieces of steel from the towers which were destroyed in the terrorist attacks on 9-11. A design contest was held, and after extensive conservation of the beams, the winning design was dedicated in 2013. The monument consists of three beams leaning together at angles that rise to 22 feet and depicts the chaos of the fallen towers. A fourth beam stands upright, apart from the others, to testify to the certainty of American resilience. (From Prince William County website)
