Artist's Description

Location: West Wilson Street; Madison, WI

Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney and Madison Police Chief Noble Ray

Madison’s 9/11 observance. 5 flags with in a quarter block area were lower one-by-one at the time events happened back in 2001. Each flag lowering was preceded with a siren signal from an emergency vehicle. The Ceremony concluded with a 21-gun rifle volley, the playing of Taps and the singing of Amazing Grace. I was able to attend 2 of the flag lowerings and watch the rifle volley from a window at work.
