The America Monopoly Special Edition

This special edition of Monopoly was released shortly after 9/11 (2002-03). The game is a celebration of America's People, Place and Greatness. Clearly influenced by 9/11, the game doesn't directly reference the Twin Towers. But, like many other objects, the patriotic symbolism, content and timing/availability show a direct connection to 9/11 and its influence. Here, the celebration of America and Uncle Sam provide more than enough evidence of the patriotic call to action that washed across the US after 9/11.
