Photojournalist Joe Rosenthal

In an image that has stood the test of time, Joe Rosenthal captured U.S. Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima during World War II. Can you find the World Trade Center image that uses a similar composition and evokes similar feelings of patriotism?

“What I see behind the photo is what it took to get up to those heights — the kind of devotion to their country that those young men had, and the sacrifices they made … I take some gratification in being a little part of what the U.S. stands for.”

— Joe Rosenthal
