  • Robert E. Lee Day, also called Lee's Birthday, is a public holiday commemorating the birth of Robert E. Lee, observed each year on the third Monday in January. The holiday is observed in the U.S. South, particularly in Alabama and Mississippi. Although Lee's actual January 19 birthdate remains a legal holiday in the Florida statute books, by and large it is not observed. Alabama and Mississippi, celebrate it together with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Arkansas combined the observance of Robert E. Lee Day with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in 1985, after two years of requiring state employees to select between the two holidays or their own birthday as a day off from work. In 2017, it passed a law removing General Lee's name from the January holiday and instead establishing a state memorial day on the second Saturday of October in honor of Lee. Robert E. Lee Day is also celebrated in Tennessee. (en)

Lee Day is also celebrated in Tennessee. To many people, this is an attempt to glorify the rebellion of slave-holding states against the legitimate government of the United States of America, a government conceived in liberty and dedicated to humanity. In addition, it is considered strange that this day falls on the same day that the Civil Rights leader and murdered pastor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is celebrated. This is a shame and a stain on the United States of America. (en)
