I think it is #2 or #3
Me thinks this may come from the writings of Frederick Johnson a former slave. Johnson and Lincoln's policy helped to inspire an anti-slavery sentiment in Britain - which would/may have otherwise joined the Confederacy. Johnson used ships and sailing metaphors a lot in his writings as they symbolised a means of escape from slavery and oppression. So the answer is 3 - not many former slaves had formal education or access to resources that would enable the development of leadership skills etc. Johnson had run schools when he could. You will need to search further to confirm Johnson as the author and the meaning of his words as suggested.
