Woodstock, the Moon, and Manson : the Turbulent End of the 60'sBook - 2009
In a single five-week period in the summer of 1969, three American astronauts landed on the moon; more than a hundred thousand hippies grooved at Woodstock; Charles Manson's "family" terrorized Los Angeles; and the scion of America's most celebrated modern political dynasty, Senator Edward Kennedy, found himself embroiled in a scandal in Chappaquiddick, Mass. Here is the full story of this remarkable year--in first-hand accounts by those who were there: from the Beatles' last rooftop jam in London to the trial of the "Chicago 7" to the shocking revelations of U.S. military brutality in My Lai, South Vietnam--and all points in between.
