The President: October Missile Crisis - October 23rd 1962, President Kennedy signs

heading toward Cuba. The whole world then waits to see what will happen.
Days later, the Russians back down and agree to remove the missiles from
Cuba if the U.S. will lift its naval blockade and guarantee no U.S. invasion
