Woodstock; or The Cavalier (1826) is a historical novel by Walter Scott. Set during the English Civil War, it was inspired by the legend of the Good Devil of Woodstock, which in 1649 supposedly tormented parliamentary commissioners who had taken possession of a royal residence at Woodstock.

The first bird that bore a prototypical resemblance to Woodstock visited Snoopy in 1967, and this is generally considered his debut, though Schulz didn't give him a name and establish him as a full-fledged character until June 22 1970.
Woodstock often works as Snoopy's secretary (most notably when the latter was appointed "Head Beagle"), and caddies for him when he plays golf (usually with some difficulty).
Woodstock is small but scrappy, taking Snoopy's gentle verbal digs at him and practical jokes in stride though not hesitating to stand up to Snoopy if his friend goes too far.
The novel is set in the year 1651 during the English Civil War and revolves around Charles II's escape from the country after the battle of Worcester.
Everard is able to prevent the sequestration of Woodstock through his influence with Cromwell, who hopes, moreover, that the fugitive Charles II will choose it as a hiding place where he could easily be captured.
He was simply glad the novel was selling well both north and south of the border, and that the general public was enthusiastic.
