THE HATFIELDS & MCCOYS: AMERICAN BLOOD FEUD TRAVELING EXHIBIT
This exhibit features the Hatfield and McCoy feud in southern West Virginia and Kentucky in the late 1800s. There have been numerous pop culture references, even a television series. The feud has been a piece of history and culture for a long time.
When the media caught wind of the Hatfield and McCoy feud, negative stereotypes were developed for West Virginians and Appalachians.
Developed by the West Virginia Humanities Council and illustrated by West Virginia University graphic design students with financial support from ZMM Architects and Engineers, this traveling exhibit relates the history of the events that have become synonymous with the word feud.
