9/11: On September 24, 2002, Congress passed the Flight 93 National Memorial Act, creating the Flight 93 National Memorial. The Act authorizes a national memorial “ to commemorate the passengers and crew of Flight 93 who, on September 11, 2001, courageously gave their lives, thereby thwarting a planned attack on our Nation’s Capital.”

Memory: The 2,200 acre national park is a new type of memorial, designed as an entire landscape through which visitors experience a sequence of natural features developed to commemorate the actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93.

Experience: Beginning with a tower of voices near the park entrance, the public will ultimately arrive to and be able to walk along the edge of the crash site, which is the focal point of what was once “a common field one day” and is now “…a field of honor forever.”
