The History Channel’s Hatfields & McCoys 6-hour miniseries sparked renewed interest in America’s most famous feud, with nearly 14 million viewers tuning in over each of the 3 nights. Now a Hatfields and McCoys reality TV show involving descendants on both sides of this famous conflict is rumored to be in the works.

Between now and then, see where all the fightin’ actually happened. Take a trip to the Tug River Valley between West Virginia and Kentucky. In the post-Civil War years, the Hatfields lived on one side (West Virginia), and the McCoys on the other (Kentucky).
