Every year on September 11th marks another passing on one of the darkest days in American history. The History Channel commemorates this year’s anniversary with a new documentary about the rebuilding of that deadly site. It airs at 6 p.m. on the History Channel. It’s called Rebuilding the World Trade Center, Marcus Robinson’s inspiring documentary chronicling the reconstruction of the World Trade Center and restoration of the New York City skyline.
The two-hour special–eight years in the making, from laying of the first foundation to triumphantly topping the gleaming new 104-story One World Trade Center with its spire–focuses on the construction workers who performed the Herculean task. They were the men and women who did the heavy lifting once the dream to rebuild was set into motion on the 16-acre site that witnessed the worst terrorist attack on American soil.
