* Atticus Finch of ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' fame is a SimpleCountryLawyer and a shining example of this trope. Unfortunately, ''Literature/GoSetAWatchman'' reveals that he does have the racist views common to this trope.

trope -- though that book appears to take place in an AlternateContinuity, being an early draft of ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' that Harper Lee considerably changed before it became the finished product.

* ThankYouForSmoking brings us "The Colonel," who is this trope made flesh. He's described as "the last great man of tobacco."

* During the American Civil War, one general inovked this trope to protect his written orders from spies: he sealed them in a fancy envelope, daubed them with perfume, and had them signed by a female hand. His orders were reportedly never intercepted, because he'd guessed correctly that no southern gentleman would ''dare'' be so uncouth as to read, never mind ''open'', a lady's love-letter.

* Clem from ''TheSuffering''.
* Arcturus Mengsk of ''{{Starcraft}}'' is portrayed as one, with him going so far as to wear clothes resembling a CSA general's outfit. Ironically, the corrupt government he overthrows (only to replace as equally-corrupt) is called the Confederacy, and its flag looks exactly like you'd think.

* In his "Groundhog Day Explained" video CGPGrey tells about Georgia's resident groundhog seasonal predictor "General Beauregard Lee, who one must assume has stylish facial hair and fans himself on the veranda of his plantation home while drinking mint julep and pining for the day when the South will rise again."

** Candie (Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio) manages to be even worse: his hobbies include the study of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrenology the racist pseudo-science of phrenology]] and forcing his slaves to fight each other to the death in �mandingo� fights for his amusement. We also see him [[spoiler:having a slave unwilling to fight torn apart by hungry dogs]].

* Like Hatfield, Sergeant Beaufort in ''Film/FortApache'' is a "fallen" example. A former Confederate officer, he enlisted in the U.S. Cavalry as a private after the Civil War. While not exactly conforming to the stereotype visually -- he is played by Pedro Armendáriz -- he is easily the most polished of the regiment's non-coms (some of whom had been officers in the Union army).
