Historical Note

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001 at 8:48 a.m., terrorists linked to Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network crashed the first hijacked airliner into One World Trade Center in New York City. At first, it was thought that a small tourist plane had veered off course and accidentally collided with the North Tower. Eighteen minutes later, a second jetliner crashed into Two World Trade Center. At this point, it became clear that they were carefully coordinated attacks on innocent civilians.

At 9:40 a.m., another jet crashed into the western part of the Pentagon. A few minutes later, Two World Trade Center collapsed. By 10:30 a.m., the other tower had followed its twin in falling to the ground. Later that morning, a flight from Newark, New Jersey to San Francisco crashed in an empty field near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in what was a failed hijack attempt that was to have targeted possibly the White House or the Capitol in Washington, DC.

The total number of those who perished was later confirmed at approximately 2,800, which included the people who died on the jetliners, as well as the firefighters, police officers, and paramedics who attempted to rescue the many civilians working in the World Trade Center complex. Additionally, 85 personnel were killed in the Pentagon attack, and all passengers aboard United Flight 93 to San Francisco perished in the crash.

In the weeks following the attacks, many people throughout the nation, and especially in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area, and in the vicinity of the nation's capital held candlelight vigils, memorial services, and religious ceremonies, and many makeshift memorials appeared all over the country. With the public so deeply affected by the tragedy, memorial services were held throughout the nation on the first anniversary of the attacks, so that those who died were remembered and honored.

Administrative Information

Preferred Citation

This collection should be cited as: Manuscript Group 1600, Changed Lives: New Jersey Remembers September 11, 2001, The New Jersey Historical Society.

Acquisition Information

In collaboration with the New Jersey Historical Commission and New Jersey Network, The New Jersey Historical Society administered the Changed Lives project to record and preserve New Jersey's response to the events of September 11th. This project collected stories and objects that demonstrated the impact of the events upon the lives of New Jerseyans, many of which are now included in this manuscript collection and the Historical Society's museum collection. Some of the material was used for the exhibition Changed Lives: New Jersey Remembers September 11, 2001, which was on display from Sept. 11 through Dec. 7, 2002.

This project was generously funded in part by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Charles Emil Thenen Foundation, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and the New Jersey Historical Commission.

The items in this collection were donated by various municipalities, schools, libraries, businesses and private citizens throughout New Jersey for The New Jersey Historical Society's 2002 exhibition, "Changed Lives: New Jersey Remembers September 11, 2001," which focused on how New Jersey's citizens responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in western Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. This collection is an artificial collection that has remained open. Even after the closing of the exhibition, materials continue to be donated and added to the collection. Additions to the collection are arranged in their own series and filed at the end of the collection.

Processing Information

There are four newspapers/newsletters within this collection that should be handled with extreme care due to their brittle nature. One of the newspapers has significant tearing among several of its pages. While most of the posters are printed on cardboard, and therefore reinforced, there are a few posters that are handwritten on thin paper, and like the newspapers, should be handled with care. Finally, in the first box in this collection, there are several loose items of ephemera not contained within folders (due to either their bulk or size), yet are housed within the box itself. These items should be carefully restored to the box is the similar positions in which they were stored to ensure the safety of both the loose items, as well as the documents contained within folders.
