Memorial Day is a day to remember. This year, the History Channel wants you to remember one of bloodiest feuds in history, that between the Hatfield family and the McCoy family. Perhaps you don’t recall the exact details of the feud, in which case you may want to check out Tony Hays’s excellent refresher.

Below, you will find the theatrical trailer for the miniseries. (As an aside, I really like this trend of doing television trailers for big premieres in the theater.) And the History Chanel has poured serious bucks into the production. It stars Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe, and Mare Winningham. That’s some star power for a miniseries!

So, will you watch?

    I’ve seen previews for this around and have to say I’m very curious. With that cast, especially, I might just have to check it out…

    Of course! My children and grandchildren are distantly related to the McCoys through my ex-husband’s father’s family, which settled in Pennsylvania before the American Revolution. Gotta see what all the fussin’ was about.
