The 1-year-old, Angel Baylee Almon, later died in the hospital. She was one of the 168 people killed in the terrorist attack. More than 500 people were injured.

Timothy McVeigh is led from a courthouse in Perry, Oklahoma, after being charged in connection with the bombing. Two years later, he was convicted on 11 counts of murder, conspiracy and using a weapon of mass destruction. He was executed by lethal injection in 2001. His co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, was sentenced to life in prison. Both McVeigh and Nichols were former U.S. Army soldiers associated with the extreme right-wing Patriot Movement. The Patriot Movement rejects the legitimacy of the federal government and law enforcement.

The Girl Scout organization was founded on this day in 1912 by 
Juliette Gordon Low (above) (1860-1927). The original name was 
Girl Guides.

A meeting in 1912 with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of
Boy Scouts, inspired Juliette to establish Girl Scouts that same
year. The first gathering was a small troop of 18 culturally and
ethnically diverse girls. The organization serves millions of girl
members today.
