The men of the York family farmed and harvested their own food, while the mother made all of the family's clothing.

To supplement the family's income, York worked in Harriman, Tennessee , [3] first in railroad construction and then as a logger. By all accounts, he was a skilled laborer who was devoted to the welfare of his family, and a crack shot with a gun.

I didn't want to go and kill. I believed in my Bible. On June 5, , at the age of 29, Alvin York registered for the draft as all men between 21 and 30 years of age were required to do as a result of the Selective Service Act.

When he registered for the draft, he answered the question "Do you claim exemption from draft specify grounds?

Don't Want To Fight. Such individuals could still be drafted and were given assignments that did not conflict with their anti-war principles.

In November , while York's application was considered, he was drafted and began his army service at Camp Gordon in Georgia. From the day he registered for the draft until he returned from the war on May 29, , York kept a diary of his activities.

In his diary, York wrote that he refused to sign documents provided by his pastor seeking a discharge from the Army on religious grounds and similar documents provided by his mother asserting a claim of exemption as the sole support of his mother and siblings.

Despite his initial, signed request for an exemption, he later disclaimed ever having been a conscientious objector.

Mihiel Offensive. His actions that day earned him the Medal of Honor. The Germans got us, and they got us right smart.

They just stopped us dead in our tracks. Their machine guns were up there on the heights overlooking us and well hidden, and we couldn't tell for certain where the terrible heavy fire was coming from And I'm telling you they were shooting straight.

Our boys just went down like the long grass before the mowing machine at home. Our attack just faded out And there we were, lying down, about halfway across [the valley] and those German machine guns and big shells getting us hard.

Under the command of Sergeant Bernard Early, four non-commissioned officers, including recently promoted Corporal York, [18] and thirteen privates were ordered to infiltrate the German lines to take out the machine guns.

The group worked their way behind the Germans and overran the headquarters of a German unit, capturing a large group of German soldiers who were preparing a counter-attack against the U.

Early's men were contending with the prisoners when German machine gun fire suddenly peppered the area, killing six Americans [19] and wounding three others.

York recalled:. And those machine guns were spitting fire and cutting down the undergrowth all around me something awful.

And the Germans were yelling orders. You never heard such a racket in all of your life. I didn't have time to dodge behind a tree or dive into the brush As soon as the machine guns opened fire on me, I began to exchange shots with them.

There were over thirty of them in continuous action, and all I could do was touch the Germans off just as fast as I could. I was sharp shooting All the time I kept yelling at them to come down.

I didn't want to kill any more than I had to. But it was they or I. And I was giving them the best I had. During the assault, six German soldiers in a trench near York charged him with fixed bayonets.

York had fired all the rounds in his M Enfield rifle, [23] so he drew his M semi-automatic pistol [24] and shot all six soldiers before they could reach him.

Failing to injure York, and seeing his mounting losses, he offered in English to surrender the unit to York, who accepted.

When decorating York with the Croix de Guerre, Marshal Ferdinand Foch told him "What you did was the greatest thing accomplished by any soldier of all the armies of Europe.

After his platoon suffered heavy casualties and 3 other noncommissioned officers had become casualties, Cpl. York assumed command.

Fearlessly leading seven men, he charged with great daring a machine gun nest which was pouring deadly and incessant fire upon his platoon.

In this heroic feat the machine gun nest was taken, together with 4 officers and men and several guns. In attempting to explain his actions during the investigation that resulted in the Medal of Honor, York told General Lindsey "A higher power than man guided and watched over me and told me what to do.

Before leaving France, York was his division's noncommissioned officer delegate to the caucus which created The American Legion , of which York was a charter member.

York's heroism went unnoticed in the United States press, even in Tennessee, until the publication of the April 26, , issue of the Saturday Evening Post , which had a circulation in excess of 2 million.

In an article titled "The Second Elder Gives Battle", journalist George Pattullo , who had learned of York's story while touring battlefields earlier in the year, laid out the themes that have dominated York's story ever since: the mountaineer, his religious faith and skill with firearms, patriotic, plainspoken and unsophisticated, an uneducated man who "seems to do everything correctly by intuition.

York arrived in Hoboken, New Jersey , on May 22, stayed at the Waldorf Astoria , and attended a formal banquet in his honor.

York refused many offers to profit from his fame, including thousands of dollars offered for appearances, product endorsements, newspaper articles, and movie rights to his life story.

Instead, he lent his name to various charitable and civic causes. York Highway. However, it was not the fully equipped farm he was promised, requiring York to borrow money to stock it.

He subsequently lost money in the farming depression that followed the war. Then the Rotary was unable to continue the installment payments on the property, leaving York to pay them himself.

In , he had no option but to seek public help, resulting in an extended discussion of his finances in the press, some of it sharply critical.

Debt in itself was a trial: "I could get used to most any kind of hardship, but I'm not fitted for the hardship of owing money.

In the s, York formed the Alvin C. York Foundation with the mission of increasing educational opportunities in his region of Tennessee.

Roosevelt , Secretary of the Treasury William G. Plans called for a non-sectarian institution providing vocational training to be called the York Agricultural Institute.

York concentrated on fund-raising, though he disappointed audiences who wanted to hear about the Argonne when he instead explained that "I occupied one space in a fifty mile front.

I saw so little it hardly seems worthwhile discussing it. I'm trying to forget the war in the interest of the mountain boys and girls that I grew up among.

Refusing to compromise, he resigned and developed plans for a rival York Industrial School. After a series of lawsuits he gained control of the original institution and was its president when it opened in December As the Great Depression deepened, the state government failed to provide promised funds, and York mortgaged his farm to fund bus transportation for students.

Even after he was ousted as president in by political and bureaucratic rivals, he continued to donate money. In York, sensing the end of his time with the institute, began to work as a project superintendent with the Civilian Conservation Corps overseeing the creation of Cumberland Mountain State Park 's Byrd Lake, one of the largest masonry projects the program ever undertook.

York became a relatively rare high-profile public voice for intervention. The time is not now ripe, nor will it ever be, to compromise with Hitler, or the things he stands for.

York's speeches attracted the attention of President Roosevelt , who frequently quoted York, particularly a passage from York's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Speech:.

By our victory in the last war, we won a lease on liberty, not a deed to it. Now after 23 years, Adolf Hitler tells us that lease is expiring, and after the manner of all leases, we have the privilege of renewing it, or letting it go by default We are standing at the crossroads of history.

The important capitals of the world in a few years will either be Berlin and Moscow, or Washington and London. And because we were for a time, side by side, I know this Unknown Soldier does too.

We owe it to him to renew that lease of liberty he helped us to get. During World War II , York attempted to re-enlist in the Army, [46] [47] however at fifty-four years of age, overweight, [46] near- diabetic , [48] and with evidence of arthritis , he was denied enlistment as a combat soldier.

Instead, he was commissioned as a major in the Army Signal Corps [46] [48] and he toured training camps and participated in bond drives in support of the war effort, usually paying his own travel expenses.

Matthew Ridgway later recalled that York "created in the minds of farm boys and clerks He served on his county draft board, and when literacy requirements forced the rejection of large numbers of Fentress County men, he offered to lead a battalion of illiterates himself, saying they were "crack shots.

As such, he seemed to affirm that the traditional virtues of the agrarian United States still had meaning in the new era.

York represented not what Americans were but what they wanted to think they were. He lived in one of the most rural parts of the country when a majority of Americans lived in cities; he rejected riches when the tenor of the nation was crassly commercial; he was pious when secularism was on the rise.

Ironically, while York endured as a symbol of an older America, he spent most of his adult life working to bring roads, schools, and industrial development to the mountains, changes that were destroying the society he had come to represent.

York cooperated with journalists in telling his life story twice in the s. York allowed Nashville-born freelance journalist Sam Cowan to see his diary and submitted to interviews.

The resulting biography focused on York's Appalachian background, describing his upbringing among the "purest Anglo-Saxons to be found today", emphasizing popular stereotypes without bringing the man to life.

Then Tom Skeyhill , an Australian-born veteran of the Gallipoli campaign , [55] visited York in Tennessee and the two became friends.

With a preface by Newton D. Baker , Secretary of War in World War I, it presented a one-dimensional York supplemented with tales of life in the Tennessee mountains.

He will not exploit himself except for his own people. All of which gives his book an appeal beyond its contents.

The mountaineer persona Cowan and Skeyhill promoted reflected York's own beliefs. In a speech at the New York World's Fair , he said:.

We, the descendants of the pioneer long hunters of the mountains, have been called Scotch-Irish and pure Anglo-Saxon, and that is complimentary, I reckon.

But we want the world to know that we are Americans. The spiritual environment and our religious life in the mountains have made our spirit wholly American, and that true pioneer American spirit still exists in the Tennessee mountains.

Even today, I want you all to know, with all the clamor of the world and its evil attractions, you still find in the little humble log cabins in the Tennessee mountains that old-fashioned family altar of prayer—the same that they used to have in grandma's and grandpa's day—which is the true spirit of the long hunters.

We in the Tennessee mountains are not transplanted Europeans; every fiber in our body and every emotion in our hearts is American. For many years, York employed a secretary, Arthur S.

Bushing, who wrote the lectures and speeches York delivered. Bushing prepared York's correspondence as well. Like the works of Cowan and Skeyhill, words commonly ascribed to York, though doubtless representing his thinking, were often composed by professional writers.

It was the highest-grossing picture of York originally believed in the morality of America's intervention in World War I.

There's as much trouble now as there was when we were over there. I think the slogan 'A war to end war' is all wrong. In the late s he called for toughness in dealing with the Soviet Union and did not hesitate to recommend using the atomic bomb in a first strike : "If they can't find anyone else to push the button, I will.

York and his wife Grace had eight children, six sons and two daughters, most named after American historical figures: Alvin Cullum, Jr.

York suffered from health problems throughout his life. He had gallbladder surgery in the late s and suffered from pneumonia in Described in as a "red-haired giant with the ruddy complexion of the outdoors" and "standing more than 6 feet More strokes and another case of pneumonia followed, and he was confined to bed from , further handicapped by failing eyesight.

He was hospitalized several times during his last two years. After a funeral service in his Jamestown church, with Gen. His funeral sermon was delivered by Richard G.

York's funeral sermon in Beginning soon after York's return to the United States at the end of the war, doubt and controversy periodically surfaced over whether the events detailed in his Medal of Honor documents had taken place as officially described, and whether other soldiers in York's unit should also have been recognized for their heroism.

Merrithew in Fullerton Laboratory for Spatial Technology at Middle Tennessee State University , had earlier placed the site meters south of the location identified by Mastriano.

Among the Mastriano expedition's finds were 46 American rifle rounds at or around the position York claimed to have fired from, and With the support and endorsement of the French government, two monuments and a historic trail were built on the site identified by Mastriano.

In At Heaven's Gate , a Tennessee mountaineer who was awarded the Medal of Honor in World War I returns from combat, becomes a state legislator, and then a bank president.

Others exploit his decency and fame for their own selfish ends as the novel explores the real-life experience of an old-fashioned hero in a cynical world.
