The fifty-one days between 28 February and 19 April 1993 proved to be a significant period for the Branch Davidians since this was when the authorities made various efforts for them to evacuate the Mt. Carmel property. On one side of the debate, the government voice explained that they intended for the Branch Davidians to go peacefully and that all efforts were aimed at this outcome. However, even the negotiation team was not able to bring about the intended result as it was the choice of the Branch Davidians. On the other hand, others thought that the FBI negotiators proceeded with psychological warfare so that the Branch Davidian resolve would subside and they would be punished for killing ATF agents. Such measures included cutting off electricity and means of communication.
