Today in History
 
On this day in 1969, the Woodstock Music Festival was scheduled to end after “three days of peace and music” in upstate New York. The iconic event didn't stop going though, and pushed on for an unscheduled fourth day. Read how granola saved the day for the "400,000 hungry hippies" in attendance looking for sustenance.
