GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Twelve years ago, the nation stood in shock, watching events play-out from the biggest terrorist attack on US soil.
Victim's and heroes will be remembered across the country, as Wednesday marks the twelfth anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and on United Airlines Flight 93.
This year Furman University's Conservative Students for a Better Tomorrow placed a flag on campus for every life lost on that day to remember the tragedy.
Their display includes nearly 3,000 flags.
The flags will be displayed through Sept. 12 on Milford Mall in front of the James Buchanan Duke Library at Furman.
Clemson University students also placed thousands of flags on campus as part of their annual 9/11: Never Forget Display.
Students gathered Tuesday night to create the flag display, organized by the Clemson Young American's for Freedom chapter. The memorial is located near the amphitheater on campus.
