Overview

Originally published in the September 1901 issue of the “American Journal of Sociology,” this Nook edition, equivalent in length to a physical book of approximately 16 pages, details the true events of the notorious Hatfield and McCoy feud of the late 1800s.

Sample passage:
The fugitives made for what was known as the Hatfield fort, on an elevation, about four miles from the mouth of Beech creek. Seeing the force of the pursuing party, Hatfield abandoned this position and made for a mountain crag higher up, known as the “Devil’s Backbone.” From this position, eight years before. Devil Anse had defied the whole McCoy crowd and gained his nom de guerre. It was a wild crag, approachable from only one direction. As soon as McCoy saw where Hatfield was heading for, he sprang forward with his men to intercept him. A sharp fight between the two forces ensued, two of the Hatfields being wounded, but their party was not prevented from reaching its destination. In the fighting that followed it meant almost sure death to expose oneself. The Indian method of dodging from tree to tree and rock to rock was used by all. The Hatfields had already severely wounded several of the pursuing party, which now decided to starve out their enemy rather than lose more lives in carrying the position by storm. They also decided to blow up the “Devil’s Backbone” by means of dynamite. It took some days to get everything in readiness. Just before the explosion occurred the desperadoes made an attempt to escape, but found it impossible to get away, three of their men being wounded in the attempt. More than half the crag was blown away, but still Hatfield was unharmed. In the excitement he fatally wounded three of the opposing party. A second train of dynamite was now laid. In the confusion that followed Hatfield and his men made their escape. They crossed over into the Kentucky mountains and disappeared completely.
