1. September 11, 2001 Memorial
Inscription.

This jagged and twisted metal is a piece of the World Trade Center in New York City which was attacked by terrorists on September 11, 2001. It was part of a perimeter column which came from the south tower and was located between the 34th and 35th floors WTC #2, south side facade; identified by foundry marks which were stamped in at the spandrel section from which this piece was cut. The torched out cross was given to a family member who lost a loved one. Let us never forget the sacrifices of those who lost their lives; family, friends and first responders in this event and the soldiers who have fought and those who continue to fight for our freedom.

This remnant was received from Charles Vitchers, lead construction superintendent for the Ground Zero recovery and cleanup efforts. The iron legs under this piece are scaled to the dimensions of the twin towers.
