The 2000s Decade in Photos: A New Millennium

The 2000s Decade in Photos: A New Millennium

by Jim Corrigan




The decade 2000-2009 marked a new era in history. After terrorists attacked on September 11, 2001, America declared a "war on terrorism." U.S. soldiers were sent to Afghanistan and, later, to Iraq. Fears of global warming convinced people to "go green." It was the decade of mobile phones, portable music players, and reality TV. The fast-paced 2000s are a decade to be remembered.
