Summary A little more than a century before thousands of young adults faced off against helmeted riot officers on the Sunset Strip our sixteenth President delivered an address about freedom and sacrifice on hallowed ground that he consecrated as a spatial haven for the fallen. Lincoln's powerful sentiment about the sacrament of space for a "New Birth of Freedom" was never more evident than during several weekends in November of 1966 when young adults defended their right to a strip of Los Angeles they called their own. The true measure of this thesis is to discover the value and meaning that the space held for an emerging Los Angeles counterculture. In order to fully appreciate how space influenced young Angelenos, the research concentrated on several unique spatial zones where the counterculture flourished.
