West Virginia: Hatfields & McCoys

Every now and then, the History channel produces some real gems. Among these is the 2012 3-part miniseries Hatfields & McCoys.

If you’re not familiar with these names, you really ought to be. Hatfields & McCoys takes inspiration from one of the most legendary family feuds of all time. Tensions rise between these two neighboring homes after a Hatfield murders a McCoy and then a McCoy daughter starts up a forbidden relationship with a Hatfield boy. It’s a lot of drama, a lot of blood and a lot of fun for viewers who like their historical shows done right.

Hatfields & McCoys is the perfect pick to represent The Mountain State. While the show was actually shot out in Romania (weird, I know), the real life feud took place in the Appalachian mountains in both West Virginia and Kentucky. In fact, if you travel out to West Virginia today, you can tour sites where the various aggressions took place. There’s a driving tour and even a “Hatfield and McCoy Historic Site Restoration.” It’s a pretty major tourist destination.

So check out the critically acclaimed miniseries (it received a whopping sixteen Emmy nominations and producer Kevin Costner won five), then plan your next road trip. The Hatfield and McCoy feud is truly fascinating.
