Behind the Scenes: 9/11 Memorial Flag

10, September 2012

Last year, Art Hill in St. Louis's Forest Park staged a moving 10th anniversary memorial to the victims of September 11, 2001. The hill was covered with large flags, each dedicated to someone who lost his or her life in the attacks. Missouri History Museum (MHM) curator Sharon Smith shares the tragic story behind one flag, and describes why it was important that MHM preserve a piece of the memorial.
