The Waco Siege occurred in February-April of 1993, when federal agents initiated a siege after a failed raid on the Branch Davidian compound. In the end, four federal agents and 82 civilians were killed. The Alkek Library holds many primary resources on the Waco Siege, in The Wittliff Collections archives and in Government Documents. The exhibit provides background on the events, as well as direction on how to learn more, about this event and other government actions, using library resources. Ashes of Waco is a digital collection from The Wittliff.
