Event
    (1863-1891)
    Feud lasted from about 1863 to 1891
    Both of the families lived on the Kentucky-West Virginia border
    The origins of the feud are unknown.
    Both families were involved in the production of illegal whiskey.
    A shoot out between the two families once left one Hatfield dead and one injured McCoy.
    Once, Ellison Hatfield insulted a group of McCoys, and he was stabbed several times, shot, and left to bleed to death.
    In retaliation, a group of Hatfields rounded up Ellison's murderers and pumped several rounds of bullets into them.
    In the end, series of kidnappings, murders, and other forms of violence had almost completely wiped out the two families.
    Some see them as uneducated hill folk stupidly shooting at one another.
    They were able to work out several uneasy truces throughout the feud.
    They show how stupid family feuds are.
    The game 'Family Feud' is loosely based on them.
    A History Channel three part mini-series on their feud set a cable television audience viewership record (Part 1 - 13.9 million, Part 2 - 13.1 million and Part 3 - 14.3 million)(May 30, 2012).
