Little wars are fought over the same kinds of things as big wars...teritory, women, livestock, pride, water, access to wealth in one form or another, vengance...but maybe not many feuds fought over ideology or religion..and of course it's a waste, but on the other hand that drive to assert and expand and conquer may be, at least to some extent, one of the things that got us where we are today...for a lot of human history war seems to have been an adaptive behavior..

Such a waste of life...and for what!

It was famous and a lot of people have heard about it who don't even know where it took place...not as many folks have heard about the Sutton-Taylor feud down in DeWitt County, in South Texas, in the 1860's and '70's, but it got a lot more people killed than the Hatfield-McCoy feud...nobody really knows how many got killed in the Sutton-Taylor feud, but at least 30, and some estimate it might have been 40 or 50...

It was a famous feud - lasted a long time, with many dead on both sides. I wonder if there are any Hatfield and McCoy descendents left in the region.
