Since you apparently didn't "get it", let me explain it to you. The humor was supposed to have two
edges, much like a sword, you see. The first idea was to present the absurdity of any one actually being fanatical enough to name a child Jefferson Davis. Then, the other "edge" was supposed to be that of naming a girl with a boy's name. The first part was to set up the second part: an initial absurdity, followed by an even greater one.
Of course, the other (more likely) possibility is that you "got it" and simply have some sort of issues with Southerners, for whatever reason. If so, that's unfortunate. We have a distinctive culture, certainly, but the contemporary south is nothing like the Antebellum one. People are essentially the same, no matter whether you live in France, Ohio, or Tennessee.
Enjoy your game. For what it's worth, I hope that you decimate the South, every time, if that's what you want... pillaging from NW Missouri to the Florida Keys. Of course, the actual civil war was over 143 years ago, so after a hopefully therapeutic session or two, you'll be able to "stack arms" and move on.
