In nine years, tolls had paid back the cost of construction. - On Oct. 25, 1861, the keel of the Union ironclad Monitor is laid at Greenpoint, N.Y. The vessel -- 172 feet long and 41 feet wide -- had a low profile, rising only 18 inches above the water. The ship had a draft of less than 11 feet so it could operate in the shallow harbors and rivers of the South. - On Oct. 24, 1945, the United Nations Charter, which was adopted and signed on June 26, takes effect and is ready to be enforced. Representatives of 50 nations attended the first conference.
