Meh Lady: A Story of the War

New York: Charles ScribnerÕs Sons, 1894. Thomas Nelson Page (1853 Ð1922) was a lawyer and American writer. Page popularized the plantation tradition genre of Southern writing, which told of an idealized version of life before the Civil War, with contented slaves working for beloved masters and their families. This ideology is known as the Lost Cause of the Confederacy. He based much of his writing on his personal experience living on a plantation in the Antebellum South. Page viewed the Antebellum South as a representation of moral purity, and often vilified the reforms of the Gilded Age as a sign of moral decline.
