Terry Nichols' hat, 1995
The Hat Makes a Statement
What were McVeigh and Nichols thinking when they planned their Oklahoma City attack? This cap speaks volumes.
The men timed their attack to coincide with the two-year anniversary of the FBI's raid on the compound of a religious cult in Waco, Texas, in 1993. They were outraged by the event, which resulted in the deaths of more than 70 people. The cap, which belonged to Terry Nichols, shows a picture of David Koresh, the cult's leader, who was killed in the raid.
