* ''DadsArmy''. Walmington-on-Sea is hosting the first US troops on British soil, so Captain Mainwaring asks Sgt Wilson how he should greet them. Wilson suggests, "Howdy partner, put it there" while offering to shake hands. Mainwaring scoffs at this, saying [[YouWatchTooMuchX he's been watching too many cowboy movies]]. This becomes the inevitable BrickJoke when the American captain enters and holds out his hand to Mainwaring. "Howdy partner, put it there!"

* The Frontier Thesis of Frederick Jackson Turner explained the uniqueness American Culture (democracy, individualism, optimism, comfort with violence) as being created by Westward Expansion. His idea being that the first few centuries of American Society were defined by a continual push against the wilderness, with frontier people having to rely on each other for day-to-day survival, but gaining wealth as individuals once the area was secure (which always came eventually). Turner's influence on the study of U.S. history was massive, and his popularity helped establish the cowyboy as representing the differences between the U.S. and other Anglosphere countries (or Europe).
