The chunk of concrete weighs nearly five tons. It was excavated from a "slurry wall" that prevented the Hudson River from flooding Ground Zero after the twin towers were taken down by airborne terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001, killing more than 2,600 people in New York City.

The artifact is being purchased by Utah’s Fallen Warrior Memorial group, which is working with the Fort Douglas Military Museum, to find a permanent home for it near a planned monument to honor women in the miltary.

Organizers will have the piece on display Friday near the Museum and plan to move it Saturday for display at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
