Pall Mall, Fentress County, in northern Tennessee, is noted for being the home of Alvin C. York. York, then a Sergeant, won world-wide fame on October 8, 1918 when, armed with a Springfield rifle and an automatic revolver, killed 20 Germans, captured a hill, and compelled the surrender of 132 of the enemy, including a Major and 3 Lieutenants. He was decorated by six nations, including the U.S. Medal of Honor and the French "Croix de Guerre". In 1942 York was commissioned a Major by the U.S. Army
