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 1863, 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 Museum of the Confederacy’s 2013 Symposium was held at the Library of Virginia, the co-sponsor. close
