For the second straight year, members of Uptown Wadesboro, Inc., placed 2,977 American flags in the courtyard of the Anson County Courthouse in memory of those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa. Flags were not placed in memory of the 19 hijackers who also died in the attacks. Wednesday was the 12th anniversary of the attacks.
