Overview

The Hatfield-McCoy feud of the 1880s and some time thereafter is one of the noted stories of folklore in America.
Today the causes of that family and friends war between the Hatfields and the McCoys will be consideredâ?"the events which led up to the tragedy. There were many causes, an accumulation of things, which finally touched off the feud, or private war, which it actually was, between two determined families.
First cause I think can be attributed to the very natures of those concerned. Both families were people of nerve because blood of British origin pulsed in their veins. That blood bespoke stubborn resistance and unflinching determination, an unwavering set.
Came the Civil War of 1861â??65 and neighbor lined up against neighbor.
In the Union corner was Randolph McCoy, leader of the McCoy clan.
In the Confederate corner, â??six feet of devil and 180 pounds of hell,â? according to Randolph McCoy, was Anderson (â??Devil Anseâ?) Hatfield, head of the Hatfield horde.
When the war ended in 1865, the internecine feelings of these two neighboring familiesâ?"only the narrow Tug River separated themâ?"did not make for friendly relations. Indeed it had been rumored that â??Devil Anseâ? Hatfield, in the course of his warfare sometime before the Civil War ended, had slain Harmon McCoy, a brother of Randolph McCoy.
This rumor was never proven. In fact, some stated that Jim Vance, later to die in the feud as a friend of the Hatfields, was the one who murdered Harmon McCoy. Whoever killed Harmon McCoy is unknown for sure even to this day, but one thing is sure, his death created ill feeling between the McCoys and the Hatfields, from the McCoy corner, of course.
A third cause of the feud was a family quarrel, which wound up in the court of a justice of the peace. That was eight years after the Civil War had ended. In those days in the rugged regions of the Tug, the people let their hogs run loose and fatten on the mast of nut-bearing trees, chestnut, acorn, hazel, and other trees.
Hogs were marked, their ears being cut with definite earmarks. In fact, a farmer then had his own earmarks registered with the county court just as he put deeds to his real estate on record.

    TERRIBLE

    This book was awful. Repetition of the same story and awful grammar make it almost. Then it turns into a rant against death penalty. Waste of time.
