In 1892, a group of men attacked a parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The attackers were armed with rocks and clubs, and they injured several people. The police arrested the attackers, but they were later released without charges.
The incident caused tensions between the city’s white and immigrant populations.
It was a beautiful day in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. But then, tragedy struck.
A crazed man drove his car into a crowd of people watching the parade. Dozens were injured, and four people were killed. This senseless act of violence has shocked and saddened the community.
We are all trying to make sense of what happened and why. There are no easy answers. But in the face of this tragedy, we see the best of humanity as well.
People have come together to support those who were injured and grieving families who lost loved ones. We stand united against hate and violence. The Waukesha Parade Attack will not define us.

What Happened During the Waukesha Parade Attack
On May 15, 2009, a white supremacist named Wade Michael Page carried out a mass shooting at the annual Sikh parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He killed six people and wounded four others before taking his own life. The victims were all Sikhs, and the attack is believed to have been motivated by hate against their religion.
Who was Responsible for the Attack
The September 11th attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.
In the years leading up to the attacks, al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri had issued numerous statements calling for attacks on American targets.
Bin Laden was angered by what he saw as America’s military presence in Saudi Arabia and its support for Israel during the Second Intifada; he also believed that Americans were “weak” and would be easy to defeat. On June 3rd, 2001, bin Laden met with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed – who would later mastermind the 9/11 attacks – and other senior al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan to discuss potential targets; it was here that they decided to target both Washington D.C. and New York City. The hijackers – all of whom were affiliated with al-Qaeda – took control of four commercial passenger jet airliners: two Boeing 757s that were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City; one Boeing 767 that was flown into the Pentagon near Washington D.C.; and one Boeing 757 that crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after its passengers fought back against the hijackers.
In total, 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks – including 2,977 victims who died as a result of direct impacts or fires within either WTC Tower – making it both deadliest terrorist attack in world history as well as deadliest structural collapse ever recorded (the towers collapsed shortly after being struck by each plane).
How Many People were Injured Or Killed During the Attack
On September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks killed 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000 others. The attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists who hijacked four commercial airplanes and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The deadliest of the four crashes was at the World Trade Center’s South Tower.
It collapsed 102 minutes after being struck by United Airlines Flight 175. 1,355 people died inside the South Tower when it fell or jumped from the building to escape the flames and smoke. Including those on the ground who were killed by falling debris, 2,606 people died as a result of this crash.
The second deadliest crash occurred when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m., killing 125 military personnel and civilians inside the building and all 64 people aboard the plane. At 10:03 a.m., United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville in Somerset County after passengers fought back against their hijackers to prevent them from reaching their target—thought to be either Washington D.C.’s Capitol Building or White House—thereby saving countless lives. All 40 passengers and crew members aboard were killed in this crash.
What was the Motive behind the Attack
On September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Both towers collapsed within hours, killing everyone on board the two flights and nearly 3,000 people who were working in or visiting the buildings.
The terrorists also crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. About 184 people died at the Pentagon, including many military personnel and civilians who worked there. The fourth hijacked airliner, United Airlines Flight 93, was initially flown toward Washington D.C., but crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania after its passengers fought back against the hijackers.
All 40 people on board were killed. In total, 2,977 people were killed in what became known as the 9/11 terrorist attacks—the deadliest act of terrorism ever carried out on U.S soil. What motivated these terrorist attacks?
There is no one answer to this question as it is complex and multi-layered. However, there are some key factors that played a role in motivating the attackers. First and foremost amongst these is religious extremism.
The attackers were associated with al-Qaeda—a Sunni Islamist militant group founded by Osama bin Laden in 1988 with the aim of carrying out global jihad (holy war) against America and its allies. For al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremists groups like them, America is seen as a “corrupt” country that is waging a war against Islam through its policies and actions both at home and abroad. By attacking America on 9/11, they hoped to strike a blow against what they see as an enemy of their religion while also gaining notoriety for their cause worldwide.
Another factor that played into motivation for these attacks was revenge—specifically for American military action in Afghanistan & Iraq (as well as other countries). In 1998, bin Laden issued a fatwa (religious edict) calling for Muslims to kill Americans wherever they could be found in response to American missile strikes on Sudan & Afghanistan (in which bin Laden was believed to be hiding at the time).
