Historian John Marszalek talked about Union General William Tecumseh Sherman, who was voted the person of the year for 1864 at an event hosted by The Library of Virginia, the Museum of the Confederacy, and the Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar. He responded by remote video from the campus of Mississippi State University in Starkville to telephone calls, tweets, and Facebook posts.

Each year, Time magazine selects a single person who had the most influence on events during the previous 12 months. This event asked historians to present arguments for who they believed Time would have selected as the Person of the Year in 1864. At the end of the day, the audience voted Union General William Tecumseh Sherman, who had been nominated by Professor Marszalek, as the winner. Footage of that event was included in the beginning of this program. close
