Our Attempts to Bring Peace
Woodstock was originally to establish ‘3 days of Peace’ as depicted on the famous poster of the event. Over 500,000 – yes, 500,000 – people came to see Hendrix, Joplin, and others come to bring peace to the world through music. However, during this time of ‘peace’ there was immense chaos surrounding the event. Drugs were everywhere, three people were killed, and women even went in to labor – all of this going on during these ‘days of peace.’ In an attempt to bring peace and comfort to the world, immense war and chaos was caused as a result of it.
