Each year, Time magazine selects the person who had the most influence on events during the preceding 12 months. Five historians were asked who they believed Time would have selected as the Person of the Year in 1865.

“Person of the Year: 1865 Symposium” was sponsored by the American Civil War Museum and held at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. close
