As a symbol of cowardice, the white feather supposedly comes from cockfighting and the belief that a cockerel (a male chicken) sporting a white feather in its tail is likely to be a poor fighter.. Pure-breed gamecocks do not show white feathers, so its presence indicates that the cockerel is an inferior cross-breed...

Visiting cards became an indispensable tool of etiquette, with sophisticated rules governing their use.. The essential convention was that one person would not expect to see another person in his own home (unless invited or introduced) without first leaving his visiting card for the person at his home..The visiting card is no longer the universal feature of upper middle class and upper class life that it once was in Europe and North America.. Much more common is the business card, in which contact details, including address and telephone number, are essential..

Forced into an army career by family tradition and fearful he might prove a coward in battle, Lieutenant Harry Faversham resigns his commission on the eve of its departure..As a result, his 3 friends and fellow officers, Captain John Durrance and Lieutenants Burroughs and Willoughby, show their contempt of his perceived cowardice by each sending him a white feather attached to a calling card..Madison Bowl, or "Mad Bowl", as it has come to be known, is located behind Madison Hall between Rugby Road and Madison Lane..Rugby Road and the neighboring streets house a large number of fraternity residences..In the years of the Civil War, Carr's Hill served as a drill field and as a site for the Confederate flag, which briefly flew above the Rotunda itself..An integral part of Rugby Road is Beta Bridge..Phi Kappa Psi and Phi Gamma Delta, both founded at the same college, form the Jefferson Duo ..
