Thomas Nelson Page (1853-1922) was a lawyer and American writer. He was one of the best-known writers of his day. Page served as Woodrow Wilson's ambassador to Italy, and the president referred to him as a "national ornament". Page's postbellum fiction featured a nostalgic view of the South in step with what is termed Lost Cause ideology.
