9/11: A Decade Later, Cigar Aficionado Looks Back

Ten years ago, the world suddenly stopped. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, changed the world. A decade later, we present to you stories from the pages of Cigar Aficionado that remember the heroes of that day.

In our December 2001 issue, we dedicated our cover story to Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who stood tall on 9/11 and the difficult days that followed. For our April 2002 issue, we sat down with the heroes who responded to the crisis to bring their stories to you.
