Army officer: Sgt. York battle site located





Last December, CBNNews.com published an article concerning the announcement by a group of Tennessee university researchers that they had found the legendary battle site where Sergeant Alvin C. York won the Medal of Honor on October 8, 1918.

The research team led by geographer Tom Nolan, a member of the geosciences faculty at Middle Tennessee State University, and Michael Birdwell, an Alvin York scholar and member of Tennessee Tech University's history faculty, uncovered more than 1,400 artifacts at a site near Châtel-Chehéry, France.

Now one man has come forward to challenge the researchers claims. United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Douglas Mastriano says the researchers are simply in the wrong place. And he says he has the proof to back up his claim.
