DALLAS (AP) — The bullhorn George W. Bush used as president to address rescuers at ground zero in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, has been sent to the national museum opening next month in New York City dedicated to chronicling the terrorist attacks.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas said Thursday that the bullhorn was hand-delivered to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. The bullhorn will return by mid-July to the presidential library, where it has been on display since it opened last year.

The bullhorn was made famous when Bush told rescue workers at the World Trade Center site, "I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."
