In recognition of the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, the Harley-Davidson Museum is displaying thousands of flags that spell the word “Remember” on the Museum grounds. This special display is in place since yesterday Saturday, September 10 until Monday, September 12.
There are 2,792 American flags incorporated in the display, each representing a person who lost his or her life on September 11, 2001, and 110 Wisconsin flags placed next to American flags to represent the Wisconsin soldiers who have lost their lives in the War on Terror since it began in 2003. Visitors are invited to stand on a platform above the display to view it on the grounds below. The Museum also invites members of the community to bring American flags needing to be retired to the Museum at any time throughout the year. (photo@harley-davidson)
