Each year Time magazine selects a single person who had the most influence on events during the previous twelve months. If the same question had been posed in the year 1861, who would Time have selected as the Person of the Year? The Museum of the Confederacy invited five historians to consider that question and nominate someone for the title.

The remaining two historians campaigned for their candidates in this second half of a two-part program. Then the five historians discussed their nominations and responded to questions from members of the audience and submitted by electronic mail. The audience then voted for Person of the Year 1861.

The Museum of the Confederacy’s 2011 Symposium was held on February 26, 2011, at the Library of Virginia, the co-sponsor. close
