Not authentic. There was a movement to create some form of one during the founding especially in the Federalist party but Washington quashed that.Is there in the USA an authentic national historical aristocray ? from knight to prince ?
Server politicians too, no? Secretary X, Senator Y, Governor Z.Judges are addressed you're honor. Doctors are addressed as Doctor. Anyone in the military or retired with 20 or more years of service is entitled to be addressed by their rank. In my case Staff SGT. Congressmen & Senators. A private wearing the medal of honor is to be saluted even by a General. Those are the only titles I'm aware of.
PS Mayors & police chiefs are addressed by their titles, Sherrifs also. Policemen & deputy are not generally addressed by their rank by civilians, but they may be. Very few civilians can read rank anyway. The only time I would insist on being addressed by rank would be if I was in court in uniform. A lawyer has to address me as Staff Sgt. That puts them in their place a bit. "Lawyers, 90% of them give the other 10% a bad reputation". The only profession less trustworthy are used car salesmen & military recruiters.
Early on, yes. The Cherokee chiefs were mostly white, as earlier chiefs married British and French officers' daughters. In colonial times, chiefs were referred to as half kings. Pocahontas married into the English Virginia elite, her son got land supposedly from his chief grandfather, and many of the First Families of Virginia are descended from her.Thank you very much.Were the indians leaders considered as the "nobility" of the old America ?
I think there were a lot of honorary Kentucky militia colonels. The militia was sort of abolished around 1900 and converted into the more professional national guard. Before that militia commissions were often based on social status, as well as wealth and connections. Particularly in the south, civilians would be addressed by militia officer rank. It had more status, because there weren't aristocratic titles or ranks.Server politicians too, no? Secretary X, Senator Y, Governor Z.
Also Kentucky Colonels, regardless of whether they're finger lickin good.
