The Feud

Hatfields and McCoys: New evidence in historic feud

Project Info

Project Description

On January 1, 1888, a half-dozen Hatfields walked six miles from West Virginia to Kentucky with the idea of solving all their problems with the McCoy clan – by killing them. In this climactic battle, the McCoys’ cabin was burned to the ground, and some shot as they escaped the flames.

It was a turning point in the feud – within 20 days the Hatfields were arrested and tried. But for nearly 125 years, there was no evidence, no artifacts, no proof of how the most famous feud in American history had ended.
