Alvin C. York didn’t want to go to war.
That’s essentially what he put on his draft card. To the question, “Do you claim exemption from draft (specify grounds)?” he wrote simply, “Yes, Don’t Want to Fight.” His faith said killing was wrong, and he believed it.
His conscientious objector status was denied, however, and York retreated to a mountain in Pall Mall, Tenn., his home all of his 30 years. There he prayed fervently before reporting to Camp Gordon, Georgia, in November of 1917. World War I was in its fourth year.
