On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the United States. Over the next 50 days and nearly 50,000 images later, White House photographers would capture the horror and heroism, the courage and compassion surrounding those attacks. From a Florida second-grade classroom to a ceremonial first pitch, these moments in time reflect the resounding resolution and resiliency of a president. President George W. Bush began his schedule that day at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. Participating in a second-grade reading demonstration, he was informed by his Chief of Staff that “America is under attack.” As events unfolded in New York City, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania, President Bush directed the nation’s response from Air Force One as he flew from Sarasota to Barksdale Air Force Base to Offutt Air Force Base and returned to Washington, DC, where he addressed the nation from the Oval Office.
