Two 25-ton steel columns - one bearing signatures of American steelworkers who helped make it - rose at the site of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, a milestone in prolonged efforts to build the skyscraper that will replace the World Trade Center. As construction workers, politicians and architects applauded, a massive crane lifted the first, 31-foot(9.3-meter)-high column, which was painted with an American flag and the words "Freedom Tower," and set it over steel bars on the southern edge of the tower's base on Tuesday. A second column set a few feet (meters) away carried the signatures of steelworkers and politicians from Virginia, where it spent time at a steel company before being shipped to New York.
