It Was August 1969 And Woodstock Drew Thousands And Thousands
Until 1969, there was only one Woodstock that I was aware of. I was 14 and it was Woodstock, Minnesota and I had relatives living near there. Heck, my Leota Little League baseball team played the team from Woodstock. A nice, quiet little town.
But that wasn’t the Woodstock that Walter Cronkite was talking about on the CBS Evening News.
Nope. This Woodstock was about Peace and Love. And by the looks of things, a whole lot of garbage to be picked up.
At the time, with me being 14, I thought it all looked pretty cool. My Dad and Mom? Yeah, not so much.
