....and only President of the CSA, Jefferson Davis, was elected on this date in 1861.
Here is an article chronicling his life by a Virginia publication. One small objection that I would make is that while Mr. Davis was once challenged to a duel, he never fought one.

I would point out for the sake of historical accuracy that while Abraham Lincoln was a member of a militia unit during the Black Hawk War, he was never in combat as the article implies.
