Thomas Nelson Page

Thomas Nelson Page (April 23, 1853 – November 1, 1922) was a lawyer, politician, and writer from the United States. During World War I, he served as the United States' ambassador to Italy from 1913 until 1919, under President Woodrow Wilson's administration. Page popularized Plantation tradition literature, which was utilized to spread the Lost Cause concept throughout the New South, in his writing. Page first drew national recognition with his story "Marse Chan," which appeared in Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine. The Burial of the Guns and in Ole Virginia are two of Page's most noteworthy pieces. Page was born on one of the Nelson family's properties in Oakland, Virginia, near the community of Beaverdam. He was the son of plantation owner and lawyer John Page and Elizabeth Burwell (Nelson). He was a descendant of the prestigious Nelson and Page families, both of whom were First Families of Virginia.
