Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the birth of the anthem "Give Peace A Chance." Go behind the scenes with powerful images, many never seen before, of the Montreal Bed-In For Peace, May 26 to June 1, 1969. The only photographer to be present the entire eight days, Life photographer Gerry Deiter captured in intimate detail the celebrities, the musicians and the fans who dropped by. Recollections by key people who spent time with John and Yoko provide a rare glimpse into what became a moment in history. Read excerpts from the interview that Life never ran and the interesting back story of why many of the photos were never published.
