Questions about the Feud
Why did the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys start?
How did Devil Anse Hatfield get that name?
His nickname was "Devil Anse" and most people say it was given him by his mother but I believe that nobody called him Devil to his face. I think he was labelled that but it wasnt a name people called him when talking to him. Some people say it is a name that Randal McCoy gave him because of his bravery during the Civil War when they fought along side each other. And some believe it was given him in contrast to his good-tempered cousin who was called Preacher Anse Hatfield. This sounds the most likely, right ?

the Pig is only part of the Hatfield McCoy Feud story. Yes, they fought over the ownership of a hog that the McCoys believed the Hatfields stole, But they had many other battles between them. Who owned 5000 acres of land was one question. You can see the deed to this at the Hatfield McCoy Country Museum and decide for yourself.
