They say if you can remember Woodstock, you weren't really there. Of course, that's not entirely true. More than 400,000 people gathered in a farmer's field in upstate New York to attend the three-day music festival in August of 1969, and many have extremely fond - and relatively clear - memories of the event. CBC Digital Archives looks at how the legendary festival has been remembered over the years.
