Wooden Replica of Branch Davidian Compound in Waco Keeps ATF Memories Alive

It was one of the darkest days in ATF’s history – Feb. 28, 1993.

Four agents were killed that morning, instigating what would be a 51-day standoff that ended with a raging fire and the deaths of about 80 Davidians members.

To remember that fateful day, an architectural firm donated a wooden replica of the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, which is on display at the ATF Houston Division headquarters, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Above the replica are photos of the four agents killed that morning.

While the replica may be a painful reminder, it also serves as a way to preserve history and continue the dialogue over what happened.
