During the month of September 2011 the world will mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against America that took place in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will commemorate this solemn anniversary with a public display of a section of steel I-beam from the World Trade Center in New York City. On display for the first time, the two-foot I-beam section was removed from “Ground Zero” and donated to the Roosevelt Library by the City of New York in 2003.

Visitors can see the item in the Henry A. Wallace Visitor Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home from Thursday, September 8 through Sunday, September 18, 2011, during regular operating hours and free of charge.
