Reporters huddled around a television in Verizon Center’s media room to watch what will go down as one of the most famous speeches in American history. President Obama’s address to the nation that Osama bin Laden was dead marked a momentous day that was then celebrated by thousands at the White House down the street from the arena.

Several media members joined those around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Sunday night and provided pictures and reaction from the scene. Here’s mine, and a collection of the others from around the web:
