The Museum of the Confederacy, the American Civil War Center, and Library of Virginia once again bring the sesquicentennial flavor to their annual symposium. For the fourth year in a row, a panel of distinguished Civil War scholars will nominate candidates for "Person of the Year" in their lectures, and the audience will have the final say by casting ballots for the most influential person of 1864. Who will join past selections Abraham Lincoln (1861), Robert E. Lee (1862), and Ulysses S. Grant (1863) as the next Person of the Year?
