The Wall of History

World Trade Center Girders

A portion of the Wall of History is devoted to the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, and mentions the new Knights of Columbus $1 Million Heroes Fund created to provide immediate financial support to the families of the law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical personnel killed at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Included are two twisted steel girders from the ruins of the World Trade Center, a plaque featuring the names of K of C members who lost their lives in the attack and a helmet from a high-ranking New York City firefighter who also lost his life.
