Branch Davidian Raid in the History section at Census.gov

On February 28, 1993, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) raided the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, TX. The raid resulted in the deaths of four agents and six Davidians, and the start of a 51-day standoff.

The standoff ended when U.S Attorney General Janet Reno approved an assault in which the Branch Davidians were to be removed from their building by force. In the course of the assault, the church building caught fire and 76 Branch Davidians (including leader David Koresh) died.
