From: My Mother, although my Father had some small part.
We do not have access to television programming (no cable, satellite, internet, etc. service), but we do have a television set. Consequently, my children grew up watching (mostly) good movies on DVD or cassette.
One of those movies was Shenandoah, with Jimmy Stewart. It has some memorable lines, but my youngest son was the one who noticed one of them.
During the movie, the "Boy" (the youngest son in the family) is taken prisoner by the Yankees. He later escapes with a veteran Rebel. They make their way overland, evading capture. One morning they wake up to the sound of a nearby enemy camp fixing breakfast. They hear the utensils clinking and smell the bacon frying. Suddenly, the veteran soldier stands up and gives whoop. Startled, the Boy asks, "What are you doing?" The veteran replies, "'Em's country boys!" He knew they were Confederates.
After my son pointed that out, we would often use that declaration while backpacking the Appalachian Trail. Smell a good meal cooking, or hear nice folks conversing, and one of us was sure to announce, "'Em's country boys!"
I always did like that movie.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
