In 1966, two years after winning the heavyweight title, Muhammad Ali refused to be drafted into the U.S. military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to American involvement in the Vietnam War. He found guilty of draft evasion charges, and stripped of his boxing titles. Ali's actions as a conscientious objector to the war made him an icon for the larger counterculture generation. (AP Photo)
