this photograph intrigues me so much! why isn’t this the most famous photo from 9/11 instead of the falling man? isn’t 2 people holding hands after jumping more significant than 1 man? it makes me wonder what the story is behind this photo, were they friends or lovers? or just strangers who were too scared to jump alone? it shows that people need a helping hand even in their final moments
An amazing man...General Joshua Chamberlain, hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, professor of rhetoric and President of Bowdoin College. Also the character upon whom Jeff Daniel's character in Gettysburg was based.
