August 15 marks the 50th anniversary of “An Aquarian Experience: 3 Days of Peace and Music,” which would eventually be known just as Woodstock.
It is one of the best-known events of the counterculture movement, which began in the 1960s in reaction to the traditional social norms of the 1950s and the political climate stemming from the civil rights movement and Vietnam conflict.
The quiz below, from the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio, provides an opportunity for you to test your knowledge of Woodstock and the social unrest and experimentation that took place during this era.
