Yeah, I caught all of it.

Good stuff. Compelling.

Truthful. Beats me.

Good entertainment though.

I assume its based on truth.. has to be. Good american folklore history. I agree it is very compelling.

Some truth, but also some "artistic liberties" with some of the known and documented facts.

Quite sad when you think of it, so much tragedy between two families.

It really was! I missed the 1st part but caught the 2nd & 3rd to the mini series, Im hoping it will re-air this week. I was amaized to find out that in 2004 both families signed a treaty to end the hatered between the two families seems both are tired of the synonym that came with the both last names. they want to just let it all go!

If I was a Hatfield, and a McCoy wanted to sign a peace treaty, I'd go there armed. They might just go on a kill-crazy rampage. Or maybe I would.

The world will never know.

The way it was portrayed in the series, the McCoy father was a law abiding man and after his two sons were murdered by the Hatfields, he just wanted justice and not blood revenge, for them, it was the bounties that were placed on the heads of the parties involved that fueled the violence, after the parties wer found guilty and sentenced to life in prison and only one family member was hanged (cousin to the Hatfields) it was then that the senior McCoy went balistic and lost his mind not to mention the killing of his daughter and other boy prior to this. I think Im going to look for a book on this feud and read what actually happened.

His sons were shot for murdering devil anse's brother. Very cowerdly I might add. That was the way it was portrayed at least.

You can watch it online via the history channel website.

Started watching it last night. Not the best streaming quality, but it was ok.
