Question ID: 714065
Did Jefferson Davis have a plan to release the slaves by educating them? I was told that the South definately planned on ending slavery over a period of time rather than immediate emmancipation. They were going to provide education and slowly reintroduce the slaves into free society. Is there any truth to this?

All I was able to find was this: Authors Kennedy and Kennedy write in their tome, The South Was Right!: "Jefferson Davis (Confederate President) wrote to his wife in February 1861 that, no matter what the result of the conflict was, the slave property of the South 'will eventually be lost,'" and that he "sought to uplift and educate the slaves to make them ready for freedom." http://www.illuminati-news.com/born-in-captivity.htm I don't consider this to be an authoritative reference, and I was not able to find other evidence, or to locate the letter mentioned in the quote.
