- The Appalachians
- #102 [TV-G]
- In the 1830s, the growing nation sets its sights on land still owned by Indians, and President Andrew Jackson orders the removal of the Cherokee to Oklahoma. Slavery and other social and economic differences widen the gap between the North and South, and the Appalachian region is caught in between, with many families divided between the Union and the Confederacy. The violence and chaos leave scars on mountain life for years to come. After the Civil War, railroads are built, forests are cut, and outside owners buy up the land. A conflict between two timbering families, the Hatfields and the McCoys, becomes a legendary "blood feud," and outsiders create the damaging stereotype of a stupid, violent hillbilly. Timbering and coal mining bring jobs, but the workers find their lives controlled by the companies. The United Mine Workers' union organizing attempts are resisted by the owners, often with violence, and resentments explode in a series of devastating strikes known as the "great coal wars."
