Louisville, Ky. – The Filson Historical Society will present a documentary by Jerry Deaton entitled The Feuds of Bloody Breathitt: Kentucky’s Untold Story, on Thursday, January 17 at noon at 1310 South 3rd Street.
The Feuds of Bloody Breathitt is a journey back to the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. When one thinks of Kentucky feuds, most often they reference the famous feud between the Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s of Pike County. In this documentary, author Jerry Deaton returns to Breathitt County to tell the story of these forgotten feuds that raged for more than 40 years and the mark they left on Kentucky that remains to this day.
