1962 · The Cuban Missile Crisis

Age 7

"One of the most direct confrontations of the Cold War was the Cuban Missile Crisis in October of 1962, which primarily took place just south of Florida. Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev had crafted a secret agreement with Cuba (under Fidel Castro) to create nuclear missiles in Cuba to deter further invasions. U.S. intelligence agents discovered evidence of this activity, so President Kennedy issued an official warning against Cuba's creation of these weapons. Cuba and the Soviet Union did not comply. After much debate regarding the correct course of action, Kennedy opted to create a naval ""quarantine"" around Cuba. This initiated a series of intense communications between Kennedy and Khrushchev, both publicly and directly. The conflict escalated to the point that a U.S jet was shot down over Cuba as the countries made increasingly stern ultimatums. Kennedy instructed the Soviets to remove missiles with the promise that the U.S. would not attack Cuba, and the Soviets agreed."
