BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland is marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks with a memorial to the state’s victims.
The 9/11 Memorial of Maryland will be dedicated Sunday in the plaza of Baltimore’s World Trade Center Building beside the Inner Harbor.
Three twisted steel beams from the World Trade Center in New York are the memorial’s centerpiece. They rest atop a stone base inscribed with the names and birthdates of the 68 Marylanders who died at the World Trade Center, Pentagon and in the Pennsylvania crash. Artifacts from the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., are also incorporated into the site.
The Maryland Air National Guard will conduct a flyover and the United States Naval Academy Band and the Morgan State University Choir will perform at the ceremony.
