For James Joyce fans, June 16 is “Bloomsday” — honoring the day in 1904 when all the events in Joyce’s massive novel “Ulysses” take place. For Hatfield and McCoy fans, “FeudDay” will be Saturday, June 2, 2012 on History Channel.
Kicking off the special day, according to Keith Davis of Chapmanville, WV, at 4 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday, June 2, will be the premiere of “America’s Greatest Feud: The Hatfields and McCoys.” Davis said the two-hour documentary, directed by Mark Cowen (”Band of Brothers”), stars several regional individuals including Raamie Barker, Bill Richardson, Dean H. King, and Keith Davis.
On Saturday, June 2, 2012, History Channel’s three-part miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys” (see accompanying story) will be repeated in its entirety starting at 6 p.m. (Eastern).
History Channel will also broadcast an episode of its popular “American Pickers” series, featuring feud items in West Virginia and Kentucky (check your local listings).
