Jefferson Davis Highway -- in New Mexico

I was really confused by this marker at the New Mexico welcome center in Lordsburg. I couldn't find anything at the welcome center, but I later read that southern Arizona and New Mexico joined to form the "Arizona Territory" under the Confederate States of America. I probably should have known this, but I hadn't realized that the Civil War had extended this far west.
