Prince William County Board Chairman Corey Stewart called the artifacts

Prince William County Board Chairman Corey Stewart said that the county was one of 800 communities on a waiting list and some areas weren’t successful in getting any memorable pieces from the attacks. Twenty-two residents died that day, which was more than any other jurisdiction in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Stewart told InsideNoVa that the sight of these artifacts are “gut-wrenching.” See for yourself:
