On October 8, 1918, Alvin York fought in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive and single-handedly killed 25 men and helped to capture over 130. He received a Medal of Honor for his actions and was one of the most decorated soldiers of World War I. Twenty-three years later, Warner Brothers made a film starring Gary Cooper called “Sergeant York” about the man from Tennessee, his life and wartime actions. In this American History TV interview, Alvin York’s grandson, along with a filmmaker who produced a documentary about the “Sergeant York” film, talked about the man and the movie. close
