Anyone who turns on a television or reads a newsfeed these days knows America has been struggling with political division, a stress on top of the coronavirus pandemic. With the U.S. presidential election less than 60 days off, rhetoric has intensified toward crescendo. But on Friday, Norwich University will pause to reflect on a moment that has unified America — remembering the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Friday, Sept. 4 marks the 200th anniversary of the first students arriving at what was then known as the American Literary, Scientific & Military Academy. Coming to the town of Norwich, Vermont, from places as near as across the bridge in Hanover and as far as southern Mississippi, the 37 handwritten names recorded as arriving on Sept. 4, 1820, in the manuscript “Roll of Cadets” represent the first members of the Norwich community.
