Slow day today so I took the opportunity to re-read this thread. Still the best thread on WAF IMHO.

Thanks Don! I have been out of action for a while, but I am ready to start getting back at it.

This thread has been an excellent read, i must have spend at least 4-5 hours reading over it all! You really put a lot of work in to this thread! I see not much has been added recently and i was curious if you have had an success getting your work recognized over the colonels ?

I was also curious if you personally or any of your colleagues have done anymore hunting in the area and found any more artifacts!

Default October 8th - 100th Anniversary of the Battle - C-Span Documentary

It has been a long time in the works and Michael Kelly's book about Nolan's research is finally out. Here is a link to a C-Span documentary discussing both Kelly's book and one by Mr. Mastriano. It was aired yesterday on C-Span, very nice since today October 8th is the 100th anniversary of York's' action in the Argonne in 1918.

Garage sale find

Sergeant Alvin York, Last of the Long Hunters

First edition.......signed

Plus........ a Bible belonging to Alvin's Uncle George York. It was given to R.Y. Burks & then to J.M. Dishmon, the same name in the main book. The Dishmon family has owned the Bible since about 1898. I believe inscription in Bible was from 3rd hand information but in the same family.
It is incorrect in stating George was Alvin's father but things get mixed up over time.

I bought a small powder horn from this sale, took it home & found some initials so I went back to ask about them. She said no relation but great grandparents lived down the road from the Yorks. O thing lead to another & found out about the books in storage.

Never underestimate a sale by how many tables of stuff, they had one.

Still doing research.
