The Hatfields and McCoys The Original Family Feud

Grangerfords and Shepherdsons “ All of a sudden, bang! bang! bang! go three or four guns.... The boys jumped for the river - both of them hurt - and as they swum down the current the men run along the bank shooting at them and signing out, ‘Kill them, kill them!’ It made me sick.... I wished I hadn’t come ashore that night to see such things.” - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Chapter XIX

Lessons Learned When the dust settled, the two families eventually put the feud behind them. The families intermarried. Today, they hold an annual reunion, and the only feuding they do is on the baseball field.
