Sept. 11 Remembrance Ceremony Tuesday in Corinth

The public is invited to take part in a 9/11 remembrance ceremony Tuesday at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center, 501 W. Linden St.

Visitors can place flags provided by the interpretive center on the front lawn of the museum from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“On this 17th anniversary of the terror attacks, it is appropriate that we take time to reflect on the events of that day and those who perished,” said Dale Wilkerson, a superintendent with the National Park Service.

A similar event will also be held at Shiloh National Military Park.

On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four commercial airplanes and crashed two of them into the World Trade Center in New York City. Another crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. Passengers fought the hijackers on the fourth airplane, which crashed in a Pennsylvania field.

The terror attacks killed almost 3,000 people.
