Remembering the Oklahoma City Bombing

Twenty-two years ago, a truck bomb went off outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, killing 168 people and injuring hundreds. It was the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil until September 11, 2001.


After the bombing, the nation came together to heal and help the survivors recover and build their futures without loved ones.

Five years after the terrorist act, the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial was dedicated. The memorial is on the grounds where the Murrah building once stood.
