Lewicke, 46, of Mason, N.H., claims at least 50 people plan to attend the Lexington re-enactment. An additional 100 people are expected to attend the Concord ceremony, he said. "We are hoping the protesters don't interrupt the re-enactment because it is a historic event in American history," said Winston Flynn, chairman of Lexington's, celebration committee. About 5,000 people are expected to show up for the 6 a.m. re-enactment on Lexington Green, said Sgt. George Anderson of the Lexington police department. "Many of the officers on the force will be at the event to ensure that the re-enactment runs smoothly, as planned," Anderson said. "We don't plan to interfere with any of the scheduled festivities," Lewicke said. "We plan to protest in a peaceful and orderly manner." The Branch Davidian complex in Waco burned to the ground last year after a tense standoff between its residents and federal agents. The standoff, which lasted 51 days, began when four agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were killed in a shootout with sect members, led by David Koresh. An investigation determined the Davidians started the fires that killed 86 people, including children. However, several officials involved in the incident were disciplined for their actions after a government probe uncovered errors made by ATF agents and lies told by the agency's top officials. "We want to get a real investigation into the events that occurred in Waco last year," Lewicke said. "We are not satisfied with the investigation conducted by the very parties that participated in the event."
