Alabama will commemorate the birthday of Jefferson Davis on Monday, closing state offices in honor of the late Confederate leader. The state is the last to have a legal holiday set aside to solely commemorate the birthday of Davis, who led the Confederate States of American from 1861-1865.
Mississippi still commemorates Davis' birthday but combines its celebration with Memorial Day. Texas includes Davis' birthday as part of its "Confederate Heroes" Day. Other Southern states, including Kentucky, Tennessee and Florida, have unofficial holidays to commemorate Davis' birth.
