Visitors to the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center on Tuesday remembered the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks by placing American flags around the flagpole in front of the museum.

The interpretive center is providing the flags to the public until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four commercial airplanes and crashed two of them into the World Trade Center in New York City. One of the planes was crashed into the Pentagon, and passengers on the fourth plane fought the terrorists, and the plane crashed into a Pennsylvania field.

About 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 terror attacks.
