The Feuding Hatfields & McCoys
Televisions heated up during the summer of 2012 when The History Channel aired a three-part miniseries based on the real-life story of William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield and his friend turned enemy, Randall McCoy. You've watched the miniseries. Now own a piece of the feud. Featured as resource material in the 2012 History Channel companion documentary, "America's Greatest Feud: Hatfields & McCoys," narrated by Kevin Costner, this book is penned by the late Dr. Coleman C. Hatfield, great-grandson of Devil Anse and grandson of Cap Hatfield. The book reflects Dr. Hatfield's unique voice throughout and his rich gift of storytelling. The co-author is Mountain State author and historian F. Keith Davis.
“As a scion of one of the feuding families of the Allegheny and Cumberland hills, and one whose forebearers began their trek westward from the Virginia coast, I offer the following for all who may be interested or desire to hear the facts from one who has first-hand knowledge of the people of whom he writes.” — Dr. Coleman C. Hatfield
Here you’ll find a timeline of events that tracks the history of the Hatfield migration westward in broad strokes, and eventually meanders its way to the rich American story of the Hatfield & McCoy Feud. It’s coupled with a variety of unique family stories that have been passed down through the children of Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield. To complete this effort, two final, pertinent chapters have been included: one by Dr. Hatfield’s father, C.A. Hatfield, and another by Logan County journalist and historian G.T. Swain.
It’s our hope that this volume—along with Dr. Hatfield’s earlier work, The Tale Of The Devil—will live up to his vision and honor his legacy as an Appalachian historian.
"Few are living who remember the clashes of galloping raiders across the border ... The Hatfields and McCoys alike, as well as their neighbors whose ancestors had come into these rugged hills a hundred years before the feud days, have all come from the pioneer stock who pushed the frontier of civilization across the hills. " — Coleman A. Hatfield, 1952
