The Feuds of Bloody Breathitt: Kentucky's Untold Story
Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (EST)
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. Travel along with Deaton, a direct descendent of a feuding family, as he interviews other descendents of feudists and relives the history from some of Breathitt County’s most colorful characters.
Jerry Deaton is the author of Appalachian Ghost Stories: Tales From Bloody Breathitt. He is a retired lobbyist for cities in the state of Kentucky and also served as a committee staffer for the Kentucky General Assembly for eight years. He currently lives in Frankfort, where he writes and runs a small inn in Lexington.
The Feuds of Bloody Breathitt: Kentucky’s Untold Story is a documentary film and lasts approximately 50 minutes. After the film, there will be a question and answer session with Deaton.
