The resources in this collection document and explore the impact of events that took place on one of the most significant days in America’s recent history, September 11, 2001. On that day, terrorists from the fundamentalist group Al-Qaeda hijacked American airliners and used them as weapons to attack American landmarks, including the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center and the Pentagon near Washington, D.C. An additional airliner bound for Washington, D.C. crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers confronted the hijackers. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks, including more than 400 first responders. The events of September 11 forever changed the U.S. government’s foreign policy, as well as its approach to protecting the American homeland.
