Blood Feud: The Hatfields and The McCoys: The Epic Story of Murder and Vengeance By Lisa Alther

America’s most notorious feud began in 1865 with the murder of Asa McCoy, a Union soldier, by a Hatfield relative who hated that McCoy had fought for the Union. But Southern grudges run long and deep, and a decade later tempers flared again, this time over stolen hogs. That theft triggered years of bloody violence and retribution that led to a Supreme Court ruling and Kentucky’s last public hanging. The last of the feud trials ended in 1901, but the families and the rivalry didn’t stop there. It continues to have an enormous impact on the popular imagination and the people of the region. Here is a new look at the infamous story of the Hatfields and the McCoys.
