The September 11th Sourcebooks
The Pentagon—a building, institution, and symbol—was conceived at
the request of Brigadier General Brehon B. Sommervell, Chief of
the Construction Division of the Office of the Quartermaster
General, on a weekend in mid-July 1941. The purpose was to
provide a temporary solution to the War Department's critical
shortage of space. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on
September 11, 1941. The building was dedicated on January 15,
1943, nearly 16 months to the day after the groundbreaking.
