This book features exclusive photographs and reports from nearly 20 years of The Tribune-Democrat’s coverage of the site including some images and stories found nowhere else.

For those who can vividly recall the events of September 11, 2001, and for those too young to remember that day, we offer the book “Heroes Were Made” – expanded and updated for the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

This book, initially published in 2011, is a heartfelt tribute to the victims of United Flight 93, to the first responders on the scene and to the Somerset County community that embraced the family members of the crash victims and took on the responsibility of preserving and telling the story of their courage in the face of terror.

A collaborative project of The Tribune-Democrat and Johnstown Magazine, the book chronicles the efforts to design, fund and build the permanent Flight 93 National Memorial – from the Wall of Names to the Visitor Center to the Tower of Voices.
