    Sgt. Alvin York Display

    This display is in the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville. Note the 1917 rifle, not a 1903. This is a typical low light museum, no flash which is why some of the photos are grainy.

    It's been one of my goals for decades to visit the Shiloh battlefield. I've grown up around Gettysburg and go there several times a year as an adult.

    It fits me with a T-shirt on but is tight. I suppose I could get it over a uniform if I didn't want to breath well for the duration.
