Waco, February 28, 1993

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms staged an armed raid against the Branch Davidian community outside Waco, Texas, with a warrant to arrest cult leader David Koresh (b. Vernon Howell) on federal firearms violations. Four agents and six Davidians died in the raid and a 51-day standoff began. (April 19 was the horrific climax.)
