The Hatfield/Mccoy Feud
The feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Eastern Kentucky dates back to Autumn 1878 when a cousin of the clan leader Devil Anse Hatfield, Floyd Hatfield, a man who took little part in this feud, went into the fields to round up his hogs and drive them to the pens at his home. Shortly thereafter, his neighbor Randall McCoy, stopped for a neighborly visit. The visit was shortened when Mr. McCoy accused Mr. Hatfield of stealing one of his hogs. It is said that McCoy rode off with harsh words bringing the wrath of God upon Hatfield. A trial ensued in favor of Hatfield, due to the testimony of a McCoy, thus igniting the feud of the Hatfields and the McCoys.
Many events followed that of the poor innocent porker, such as each on a different side in the Civil War, the romance between a Hatfield and a McCoy, the 1882 election, and the fight when three McCoy boys stabbed a Hatfield to death, setting the wheels in motion in the irreversible feud. The feud, lasting over 120 years, has never seen an equal in U.S. History for its deadliness, duration, and desperation in the fight for “THE” name. One man who fought his way from a log cabin on a dirt road farm to a corporate executive is Guy Hatfield.
Guy Hatfield is proud of his roots and has dedicated this Inn to the memory of his ancestors, The Hatfields.
