To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, the Office of the House Historian published 20 interview transcripts from the online oral history exhibit, "Due to the Circumstances of Today": The U.S. House of Representatives Remembers September 11, 2001. Individually, each interview offers insight into the long-term security and procedural changes that fundamentally altered the daily workings of the House. Together, the project’s collective perspective illuminates the way this dramatic event transformed the nation.
