This is pretty amazing . They actually found the exact location of Sgt. York's charge. After 88 years, a group calling themselves the Sgt York Discovery Expedition found 19 of the 21 .45 ACP bullets that were fired. I remember watching the movie, on a Saturday afternoon, when I was about 8 or 10 years old, and have been a great admirer of the man ever since.

Thanks for posting this. I'd not seen this before. A few years ago I went to a lecture on the dig at the Little Bighorn and what the artifacts told them . I hope that this story makes it to the History Channel.

88 years after... See, this gives impetus to never give up the fight. Look long and hard enough and voila! That is something!!!
