PERSON FROM HISTORYA character from history is Ranel McCoy. He is
one of the two men to start the feud. No one
knows how the feud started but the most
popular reason is when Ranel’s prettiest
daughter Roseanna (thought to be the
prettiest girl in three counties) runs away from
home with Anse Hatfield’s (nicknamed Devil
Anse) handsome son, Johnse Hatfield. Another
reason Ranel McCoy is my character from
history is because he is brave and cares for his

I recommend this book because it is interesting.
Also because you just want to keep reading it.
This book really puts an image in your head of
what the plot looks like. This book was really fun
to read and if you do read it, I hope that you
“What seemed to be happening, if you put
your mind to it, we were getting along in our
house, helping each other.”- Fanny McCoy
MY FAVORITE CHARACTER
My favorite Character is Roseanna McCoy
because she is brave and loving. She is
Fanny McCoy’s favorite sister, and she
protects her friends and family. I also like her
because she gives good advice to her
brothers and sisters. She is kind and
everybody thought she was the prettiest girl
in three counties.
There were more McCoy children but they were not involved in the
feud so they were not included in the book.
Fanny McCoy was said to be the youngest in this book, but she was
really not. But the author thought she was at the right age to tell the
Mr. Ambrose Cuzlin, Fanny’s teacher, really didn’t exist. The author
thought he would be the right person to be Fanny’s teacher.
This story is thought to be a real-life story of Romeo and Juliet,
because the family is feuding, and two people, one from each family,
fall in love, as in Romeo and Juliet.
