Our ancestors resided in an era of chivalry.  Good manners and polite conversation was the attitude of the day. I like the idea of a slightly bowed head as a form of greeting.  It denotes respect and sets the tone.  One little bow, a moment of reflection, would serve society well in this age also.  It says "I honor you."  The gentleman offered his arm to the lady.  "Please allow me to protect you," it said.  No conflict here.  As Europeans immigrated into the American colonies, they brought along good manners and decorum.  Members of society were expected to pay their bills and take responsibility for their actions.  If they did not, they were designated as the black sheep forgotten by business.
Before the Revolutionary War, Charleston, South Carolina enjoyed a charming facade of chivalry.
