2: April 17, 1861 West Virginia split from Virginia and joined the Union.
4: The Hatfields and McCoys have a dispute over a pig. Randle McCoy accused Devil Anse Hatfield's family of stealing one of his pigs. The Hatfield's claimed it was theirs because it was on their land but Randle disagreed because they were tagged as his. They went to court and lost the court case because a mutual family member, Bill Staton testified against the McCoys. | "It goes back to when Pa lost his sow and his pigs, two years ago." (Rinaldi 12.)
6: Bill Staton was killed by Sam and Paris McCoy for testifying in court. | "A fight almost broke out in court, but Pa abided by the judges decision." (Rinaldi 18)
8: Roseanna McCoy, Randle McCoys daughter, and Johnse Hatfield, Devil Anse's son, ran off together on Election Day in Virginia of 1880 and Roseanna went to live with the Hatfields in West Virginia.
9: "Yet there was Johnse Hatfield walking towards us. "Howdy there, girls." And he leaned against that locust tree, grinning for all he was worth" (Rinaldi 28.)
10: Roseanna comes back to the McCoy house. | "But one of these days me and Johnse will be wed properlike. Then nobody can keep us apart" (Rinaldi 68.)
12: Johnse Hatfield was taken to jail for seducing Roseanna but his family took him back to West Virginia before he went to his hearing. | "Johnse Hatfield, I'm here to arrest you under the laws of the great state of Kentucky for seducing a young woman, hand over your pistol." (Rinaldi 95)
14: After Roseanna returns to the McCoy house she realizes she's pregnant but keeps it a secret. | "It was later on that night in our room, when she was working on her Coffin quilt, that Ro told me she was going to have a baby." (Rinaldi 74.)
16: Ellison Hatfield, Devil Anse's brother, was killed during the election of 1882 by Tolbert, Bud, and Pharmer McCoy, three of Randle McCoys sons.
17: "If people hereabouts recollect Election Day of 1880 as the day my sister Roseanna ran off with Johnse Hatfield, they will always mark election day of 1882 as the time of big trouble." (Rinaldi 143.)
18: In turn, Tolbert, Pharmer, and Bud McCoy were killed by Hatfields and buried together. | " All three of them- Tolbert Pharmer and Bud- shot by Devil Anse and his men under the pawpaw trees on the Kentucky side of the Tug." (Rinaldi 155.)
20: The Hatfields raided the McCoy house and burned it to the ground. Alifair and Calvin were killed. | "No sooner had I closed my eyes, it seemed, that the sickening sound of crashing glass woke me." (Rinaldi 187.)
22: Ellison Mounts was hanged for Alifair's murder. | "The reason I know that Ellison Mounts didnt kill my sister Alifair is more than because I heard Cap Hatfield talking with her that night just afore she was shot. It's because Reverend Thompson told me." (Rinaldi 203.)
24: On December 10th, 1889 Roseanna dies. | "Ro died a month later. Willed herself to." (Rinaldi 215.)
26: In 1891 the Hatfields and McCoys agree to quit fighting.
28: In 1901 the last trial of the fued took place.
30: June 14, 2003 representatives from each family joined and signed a peace treaty following 9/11 to show that anyone can put their differences aside in a time of trouble.
