"I will be as harsh as truth and as uncompromising as justice. I will not equivocate, I will not excuse, I will not retreat one single inch and I will be heard." FREDRICK DOUGLASS  

Today in History

Liberty forever!

On April 19, 1775, British regulars clashed with American patriots in the villages of Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. The "shot heard round the world" marked the beginning of the American revolution, and set us on the path toward declaring and winning our liberty.

Today, 20 years later, we take a look back at the destruction and lives changed—and lost—by the terrorist attack.

On April 19, 1995, 168 people were killed and 680 injured in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City—leaving the country in mourning and in shock.

The blast damaged or destroyed 324 buildings, ruined 86 cars and shattered 258 windows in nearby buildings. It was the work of two domestic terrorists, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

Today, 20 years later, we take a look back at the destruction and lives changed—and lost—by the terrorist attack.
