After the tragic events of 9/11, a seven-and-a-half ton steel beam from one of the World Trade Towers was given to the U.S. Navy. It was sent to a foundry in Louisiana and eventually became the bow of the USS New York. Readers of all ages will moved to see the painstaking work that went into the ship and the perils the workers faced when Katrina threatened their efforts.
