This chapter asks how plans to free and arm large numbers of slaves for the Confederacy's defense could square with a commitment to preserving the South's plantation system, unfree black labor, and maintain white supremacy. It compares “Confederate emancipation” with parallel historical situations elsewhere in the world, other occasions in which social and political elites strove to avoid utter ruin by modifying the ways in which they held and exercised power.
