||Civil War Feuds:
A Family Tradition
September 14, 2015 at 6:45PM

Numerous feuds arose during these troubled times pitting neighbor against neighbor, family against family,
and brother against brother resulting in conflicts lasting well into the twentieth century.
This presentation is dedicated to all who suffered emotional or physical injury or death related to those troubled times
in our nation's history with a commitment to NEVER allow a sequel of Americans against Americans to occur
in the future of the United States of America.
It focuses on notorious feuds that occurred in Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida
with a blend of nineteenth century historical, political, and cultural aspects of each area.
