    I'm a big history buff and love Civil War era stuff (basically anything from 1800 to 1900). I'm far from an expert but it's my get away from work when I need to unwind. Anyhow if anybody has been watching this mini-series going on right now about the most famous feud in North American history I found a very cool write up about it that was written back in 1914 when both Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield were still alive. It's not in the best format to read along with but considering that it was done eons before the digital world took over it's fine!

    Very cool stuff in that book on some other Kentucky feuds too except they don't cover the Clay County Feud which was likely the longest running feud spanning over 60 years between the Bakers and the Whites.

    Let's go to Lukenbach Texas
    With Waylon, Willie & the boys
    This successful life we're livin'
    Got us feuding like the Hatfields & McCoys.

    Between Hank Williams pain songs
    Newberry's train songs
    And blue eyes cryin' in the rain
    Out in Lukenbach Texas
    There ain't nobody feelin' no pain.

    No reason I posted this other than the song popped into my head. ;)
