History: Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11

History: Today is the 19th anniversary of 9/11

On the morning of September 11, 2001, a series of 4 coordinated suicide attacks were carried out by the terrorist group, Al Qaeda. 19 militants hijacked 4 California bound airplanes from East Coast cities in the US and used the planes to target major American landmarks. Two planes were crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center, which caused them to collapse within two hours of being struck. One plane was crashed into the Pentagon building while the fourth plane, thought to be bound towards Washington DC, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers tried to fight back against the hijackers. The attacks claimed the lives of about 3,000 people and destroyed property worth billions of dollars. The attack was the precursor to the War Against Terror and the War in Afghanistan.

Today in History: New Amsterdam becomes New York in 1664

Today in History: New Amsterdam becomes New York in 1664

New York City traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan; the post was named New Amsterdam in 1626. The city and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country’s largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a world symbol of the United States and its ideals of liberty and peace.
