Send us your Woodstock memories!

Woodstock will forever be remembered as the music festival that defined a generation. 1969 was the year Richard Nixon took office, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon and on Aug. 15, 16 and 17, nearly 500,000 young people streamed into a sleepy farm in upstate New York to be part of something that promised three days of peace and music. What those who braved the trek to Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, N.Y., experienced was something much more.
