State Offices CLOSED Today (Monday)

State Offices are closed today (Monday, April 22nd) for one of Alabama’s three Confederate-related holidays.

April 22nd is observed as Confederate Memorial Day – and state offices – including state courts, are closed.  However federal and municipal offices and courts are OPEN.

Confederate Memorial Day, a state holiday since 1901 – is observed each year on the fourth Monday in April – and the state ALSO has holidays for Confederate General Robert E. Lee – that’s combined with the birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. in January – and there’s another honoring Confederate President Jefferson Davis in June.

Alabama is one of the few remaining states to mark the day as an official state holiday.  Mississippi marks Confederate Memorial Day on the final Monday in April and South Carolina has its state holiday in May.
