    The worst disaster in American history must be the 9/11 bombings of the twin towers and the Pentagon, and the loss of the plane in the field.

    9/11. It was the TV and internet era that made it pop.

    9/11 and the military toll in the ensuing wars in the Middle East, which are inextricably bound to each other.

    I would say the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese during WW2.

    Have to agree with most everyone else and go with 9/11. Just a horrible time for the United States but also a time that really brought the nation together.

    Although the 9/11 disaster is still a fresh wound on our hearts, I think the Great Depression had a more lasting effect on the country. Every single family was affected in a very real way. I think of it as the war without weapons. Not knowing where your next meal was coming from, the value placed on employement, the sense of worth – it even re-defined the meaning of family

    9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre and the aftermath that followed – and still is present and probably always will, as the Terrorist Attacks still occur.
