Today in New York, 300 U.S. lawmakers will meet in a special joint session to mark the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Congress hasn’t convened in the city in over 200 years.
Today’s session will take place at Federal Hall. The Hall is located on the site where the first Congress met, where the Bill of Rights was written and where George Washington was inaugurated in 1790 as the first president of the United States.
- Howard Zinn, historian, author of 'A People's History of the United States’
