Will the September 11 attacks ever be forgotten about in history?

    No. There may be some that don't know about it, especially children of irresponsible parents that don't bother to tell them but it will always be remembered.

    Only those born after the attack will even know about it - especially if their teachers do not teach them about it.

    Sure it will, just give it time.  Did you know that Congress investigated the destruction of the ship that supposedly got us into the Spanish-Assmercan war, then the Navy investigated it.  All signs point to the 'Remember the Maine' incident as self-inflicted.  We GOT INTO A WAR OVER IT - we wanted to attack Mexico and we needed a reason.  If you are familiar with the phrase 'Remember the Maine' - then you probably don't know we did ourselves that time - and probably every time since.  People have forgotten.

    Not in American History, it will not be forgotten.  It is even in the Holy Bible

    Isaiah 30:25b KJV " the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall."

    The Old Prophet Isaiah saw it in the future and wrote about it.

    Historians who specialize in North America will probably remember it a couple thousand years from now, but how many people today remember the Roman Empire's slaughter of the Dacians?

    It will be remembered but not necessarily for the reasons people may think.   History tends to be a little more objective in looking at past events. When today's Americans think about Pearl Harbor do  they remember the personal tragedies or do they think of it as the single event that brought the US into WW2?  In time 9/11 may be remembered as the event which brought about the creation of Homeland Security, or the US invasion of Iraq, or the cause of the downfall of Saddam Hussein, etc. 

    As an example why do we remember the Ides of March and the assassination of Julius Caesar?  It certainly isn't due to our personal feelings of loss but due to what the consequences for Rome were.

    No but as it will get to the point that there is no close family left of the victims, movies will be made about it like the Titanic. I mean, things get so old it's not offensive any more to dramatise it.
