Editor’s Note:

Ever since it first appeared in our March/April 1996 issue the late Norma Lugar’s story about Roseanne McCoy and the brutal feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys has been one of the single most popular stories to grace the pages of Blue Ridge Country magazine. This guest blog series is meant to honor the legacy of that story by carrying the conversation forward and presenting new perspectives and information about the feud. Although the notable authors and historians we have invited to contribute to this series will make every effort to base their contributions in fact, please note the information and views shared in this series are those of the individual writers. We acknowledge that many of the exact details of the feud remain clouded to this day. If you have any opposing views or additional information, we invite you to join the discussion by sharing it in the comments section. Thank you!
