The Feud: The Hatfields and McCoys: The True Story
The first sentence in Chapter one of G. Hatfield wrote p. Writers of feud stories have a choice. With the lone exception of Altina Waller, all feud writers before my book opted to rely upon prior feud stories and ignore the actual records. The letter from Samuel Clay, advocating a pardon for Elias Hatfield, appears in no feud book. We Southern Appalachians are the only demographic group that can be publicly insulted with impunity in this politically correct twenty-first century. This will continue to be the case so long as Southern Appalachians continue to aid in the promulgation of lies about themselves and their ancestors.

See a Problem?
With its rich tangle of vexed familial connections — Raylan is a lawman; his father is an outlaw — and longstanding feuds, the show harks back to the granddaddy of all Appalachian noir: the Hatfield-McCoy feud. One of the violent epics of American folklore, the contretemps erupted in the rugged Kentucky-West Virginia border country in the s, but its antecedents can be traced to the fault lines of the Civil War. Generations have argued over who started the whole thing: Hatfields tell it one way; McCoys another. But whoever provoked it, the deeds of these fractious families have passed into the annals of myth. The feud was never a straight split between the families, which had intermarried for generations; indeed, several McCoys sided with Hatfields, which makes the feud an all the more complex phenomena to pick apart.
