More than 50 years ago, the discovery of Soviet missiles in Cuba led to a 13-day standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union. After spending 16 years in a Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 remains the closest the two superpowers ever came to an all-out nuclear conflict. Tense negotiations and risky moves on the part of the Kennedy administration neutralized the conflict, but the terror incited by the crisis still shook the globe. Regardless, the Cold War continued on until its official end in 1991—though some argue it still exists today. Explore the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis and its legacy with HeinOnline…

On this day each October, we observe the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas in 1492. However, the often-devastating impact of “Western” influences on indigenous Americans has led some to be wary of celebrating the man who started it all. As a solution, many have begun to counter-celebrate with “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” in honor of American Indian history and culture.

Regardless of your stance on Columbus Day, one thing is certain—albeit dark at times, American Indians have a rich and storied history which is forever entwined with the evolution of the United States. Join us as we explore that history with HeinOnline’s American Indian Law Collection and other relevant databases…
