Alabama to Observe Confederate Memorial Day on Monday

Associated Press, April 23, 2022

State offices will be closed Monday in Alabama for Confederate Memorial Day.

The day is one of three Confederate-related state holidays in Alabama. The state jointly observes Robert E. Lee Day with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January, and Alabama marks the birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in June.


Mississippi also recognizes the last Monday in April as Confederate Memorial Day. South Carolina will mark Confederate Memorial Day in May.
