(KSL News) A Utah sculptor's representation of a special moment in American history left for a new home today.

One year ago Stan Watts was granted the rights to create the sculptures "To Lift a Nation", statues modeled after the famous Sept. 11 photograph of three firefighters raising the American flag.

The 20-foot tall statues will travel across the country to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
