Love This – Hatfields & McCoys

Posted by lori . 13 Comments

Last night was Part 1 of the 3-part mini-series Hatfields & McCoys on the History Channel.  I love history, and shows like this are brilliant for whetting your interest to learn more and for getting a sense of all the different bits and pieces that make-up historical periods and events.

The Hatfield-McCoy feud is now part of American folklore and legend.  The real Hatfield-McCoy feud started around 1863 between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky and ran until 1901.

If you missed Part 1, don’t worry.  Part 1 repeats tonight, right before Part 2 starts at 9 pm Eastern Standard Time

    Oh, I am green with envy! I love interesting history shows, but we don’t get cable. I’ll have to see if it’s coming out on DVD or something.

    I know where you took that picture! lol I love that barn every time we drive past it!

    We watched it last night and thought it was good. We will be tuning in tonight. I think it is coming out on DVD, isn’t it? I thought they said Amazon will have it.

    I noticed you commented on Frosty Paws on my blog. I make my own. I used to buy them, when I just had Jack, but had to change my ways with two dogs. I just take vanilla flavored yogurt and add peanut butter or pumpkin pie to it and blend it. I put it in small Glad plastic containers with lids and freeze it. I buy the large container of yogurt (32 oz, I think) and it makes about 18 treats for $2.50 plus the cost of peanut butter or whatever else I put in it. Scout loves her “frosty treats”. 🙂

    There’s so much good on TV, besides Retro Network reruns of that 70s car show with David Hasselhoff. Too bad I never get time to watch it! This sounds like a really good series.

  • Pip says:

    Oh, we will have to check this out! We love these kinds of series, too.

    Your pal, Pip
