This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Disasters & Events that Shaped America - The Oklahoma City Bombing. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
At 9:02 a.m. on April 19, 1995, a 5,000-pound bomb, hidden inside a Ryder truck, exploded just outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The explosion caused massive damage to the building and killed 168 people, 19 of whom were children.
Those responsible for what became known as the Oklahoma City Bombing were home-grown terrorists, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. This deadly bombing was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil until the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attack.
90 minutes after the explosion, McVeigh was pulled over by a highway patrol officer for driving without a license plate but when the officer discovered that McVeigh had an unregistered gun, he arrested him on a firearms charge. Before McVeigh was released, his ties to the explosion were discovered. Unfortunately for McVeigh, almost all his purchases and rental agreements related to the bombing could be traced back to him after the explosion.
On June 11, 2001, McVeigh was executed and Nichols received a jail sentence.
The presentation covers the following:
Day of Attack
Pursuing The Criminals
Nichols Gets Life Sentence
Fortier Gets 12 Years
