The 60's were very much affected by the war in Vietnam and growing racial issues.
The 1960's were a time of revolution.
The summer of 1969 was a time of change.
The Woodstock Music and Art Fair took place in Bethel in upstate New York from 15 to 17 August 1969.
Billed as "3 Days of Peace and Music", the Woodstock Festival was a turning point for a nation of indiviuals that stood for peace, understanding and love.
The event represented a milestone in the use of music as a medium for political expression.
Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of this time period appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend.
More than 450,000 people attended the concert.
It is widely regarded as one of the greatest concerts in music history.
The Woodstock concert also made a stand for pacifism, with even the unarmed guards wearing tags reading "peace" instead of "security."
It is difficult to overstate the cultural significance of Woodstock not only to the U.S. but to the world.
