Robert E Lee’s Birthday

Robert E. Lee’s Day is a state holiday in many parts of the U.S that commemorates the birthday of Robert E. Lee. It is a legal state holiday in Alabama, and Mississippi and in those states, it is observed on the third Monday of January – the same day as Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is also a legal holiday in the state of Florida and is celebrated on January 19th. Because it commemorates the birthday of a Confederate General, this holiday is mainly celebrated in southern states in the United States. In Virginia, Robert E. Lee’s Birthday is celebrated as part of Lee-Jackson Day on the Friday before Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
