Records Related to the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks on the Pentagon
Record Group 133 is primarily made up of textual materials, photographs, some memorabilia, and audio-visual materials. The bulk of the collection dates from 2001-2002 and features photographs of the aftermath and days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the Pentagon, most of which have been digitized and made public here.
Additional materials in this collection are held in the Arlington Community Archives for research use. These include Subgroup 2, Correspondence, which consists of many thank-you cards written by school children to the fire fighters of the Arlington Fire Department. It also includes Subgroup 3, County Remembrance and Response, which holds County Manager Ron Carlee's papers used during the response, after-action reports, ephemera from memorial services, and VHS tape recordings of memorial events. While these items have yet to be digitized, those wishing to research them may use the online finding aid to determine which boxes or folders would be useful and/or contact the Center for Local History to make a research consultation appointment.
