To Fight For The Right...Without Question Or Pause

The Great Boatlift of 9/11 became the largest sea evacuation in history. Larger than the evacuation of Dunkirk in World War II where 339,000 British soldiers were rescued over the course of nine days. On 9/11 nearly 500,000 civilians were rescued from Manhattan by boat. It took less than nine hours.
