A little known fact about the Hatfield and McCoy feud is that nearly all of the men involved were also Civil War veterans. The Hatfield patriarch, William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield served in the Confederate army 1861-1865 and was involved in numerous engagements in the western Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee areas. Unfortunately, most historians have inaccurately reported his military service. This brief but detailed work debunks several myths about his years as a Confederate soldier, and sheds more insight into one of the most mysterious characters in American folk history.
