Monday marks the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and United Flight 93, which crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
That morning started like any other. Roll Call’s photographers were at the Capitol for what would have been a normal workday, but ended up capturing the mayhem on a day that irrevocably changed our nation.
