I reverted edits describing Lee, Jackson, and King as "champions of individual liberties." Sure, you can describe the Confederacy as such (to a degree, I agree with that point of view), but it's not npov. If the anonymous editor cares that much, maybe that rationale can be inserted as a possible explanation of the original lumping together, but as it was poorly written as was and didn't actually make sense in context, I reverted it. 128.54.250.40 (talk) 21:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)Nemo

I fixed it a little more, and there needs to be a citation that supports the notion that it was debate over the holiday's nature that prompted the change. --Ave Caesar (talk) 19:51, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Are the two holidays celebrated on separate days or is it two holidays on the same day? This stub is confusing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.125.108.27 (talk) 03:23, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

I have a 1980-81 student directory from Great Falls Elementary School in Great Falls, Virginia (Fairfax County) and it lists "Lee-Jackson-King Day" as a holiday. Are we sure that the 1984 inception date is correct? Was Virginia unofficially observing the holiday before this date? Evidently, the observance of this holiday prior to 1984 was official enough to have been listed in a public school calendar.
