“It’s simply a wonderful play.”
Sergeant Alvin York was one of the most decorated WW1 soldiers of the U.S. Army. He received the Medal of honor for killing 28 German soldiers and singlehandedly capturing 132 others in the Battle of the Argonne Forest, France. Gary Cooper won an Academy Award for best actor portraying Alvin York in the beloved 1941 film, Sergeant York.
“Seeing this play is a great opportunity to learn more about a true American Hero.”
SERGEANT YORK: THE PLAY, tells the story of York’s WW1 success, but also dramatizes what York accomplished in his community following the war. York built roads into Pall Mall and constructed the Alvin C. York Institute, which forever changed the lives of the people of The Valley of the Three Forks of the Wolf.

What People Are Saying About the Play
“Sergeant York: The Play is wonderful. Playwright Lisa Soland has really captured the heart and soul of what my great grandfather, Alvin York, was all about. She’s done extensive research, not only on Sgt. York, but interviews with the family, spending a lot of time in Pall Mall, getting to know the culture and the family and the story about the man behind the medals. The play captures Sgt. York’s loyalty to God and country, and his service to the community. It’s simply a wonderful play.”
– Deborah York, Executive Director of The Sgt. York Patriotic Foundation and great granddaughter of Alvin York
“If you have the opportunity, you really should check out Sergeant York: The Play. It’s incredibly historically accurate and true to the essence of Sgt. York’s story. Seeing this play is a great opportunity to learn more about a true American Hero.”
– Josh Wagner, Sgt. Alvin York State Park Manager
