September 11, 2001


What happened:

On September 11, 2001, a group of terrorists attcked the United States. This historical event was very tragic because nearly 3,000 people were killed and many were left scarred emotionally and physically. Who did this? Well, a terrorist group called the Al Qaeda hijacked a few planes and flew two out of the four planes into two skyscrapers in New York City. One of the other planes crashed and the other wrecked a part of the Pentagon. It is said that the Al Qaeda did this was because they were not happy with America and other countries getting involved with the Middle East.

This map shows the directions the planes flew.
