He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

1969 - In the year of Furman Lindsay's passing, in August, a previously planned small concert turned into a (free) more than 400,000 strong gathering of attendees and bands at Max Yasgur's farm in upstate New York - now called Woodstock.
