What was something Jefferson Davis do for the people?

the first answer was "nothing", but I strongly disagree about that. Jefferson Davis did many good things for the people of the South, but not for the people of the North. Jefferson led his people to fight for what they believe in, even though what they believed in was wrong. Jefferson Davis was actually not such a bad guy, once you think about it....

Lee and finally early in 1865, and too late, Lee was appointed general in chief of Southern forces.

What were Jefferson Davis accomplishment during the civil war?

Minimal - the man was out of his depth. His handling of his Generals was a bad mixture of cronyism and military misjudgment. He could not control his cabinet. He did not go out on the stump, making morale-raising speeches in public. He just stayed at home, making appeals for loyalty.
