Micajah and Wiley Harpe, known respectively as "Big" and "Little" Harpe, spread misery and terror through the western frontier in the 1790s. They took what they wanted, leaving a trail of death and destruction through Kentucky and Tennessee.

The Harpes are considered by many to be the first recorded serial killers in American history.
