In Virginia, the birthdays of Gen. Robert E. Lee and Lt. Gen. Tomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson have been celebrated together as a state holiday since 1904 (Lee since 1889, Jackson was added later.)

It was originally observed on the 3rd Monday in Jan, but President Reagan made that day the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. It was Lee-Jackson-King day until 2000, when Lee-Jackson Day was restored as a separate holiday and moved to the Friday before MLK.

So the gist of it is... I get a 4-day weekend!

Me too! Gotta love the perks of employment with the Commonwealth. I'll be cleaning up the house, making sure the dogs don't get too muddy outside and dropping by the PO. I have a package to drop off......I think one may be going to a gorilla on this board :)

Hmm....who could it be?
