On This Day: Cuban Missile Crisis

In October 1962, the U.S. engaged in a 13 day confrontation with the Soviet Union over the deployment of Soviet missiles to Cuba. President John Kennedy notified Americans about the presence of the missiles and his plan to respond to ensure our national security. Nikita Khrushchev, leader of the Soviet Union, offered to remove the missiles if the U.S. agreed to not invade Cuba.
