New York City firefighters work at the World Trade Center after two hijacked planes crashed into the Twin Towers September 11, 2001 in New York.

Twenty tons of wreckage from the World Trade Center is part of what's been transported from New York to the Nixon Presidential Library to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

A motorcade arrived in Yorba Linda carrying 20 tons of steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center along with a damaged New York Fire Department ladder truck.

The remnants from the disaster are part of a tribute to 9/11 victims as the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks approaches.

The week-long program will feature 60 members of the Navy Sea Cadets, patriotic choral presentations by local schools, an antique fire engine display, solemn bagpipe arrangement and bell tolling in honor of those who lost their lives on Sept. 11.

The free exhibit will continue at the library through next Sunday, 9/11.
