The Famous Family Feud In West Virginia That’s Lasted Over 100 Years

Family feuds can be nasty things. It is bad enough when two people are at odds, but when entire families are pitted against each other, the differing personalities and temperaments of many people get thrown into the mix, multiplying the possibility of additional disagreements. That is why feuds can last for so long, even longer than a century. Just ask the Hatfields and McCoys.
