    While I have never heard of Confederate Memorial Day, it appears to be a state not national holiday like Memorial Day, so under control of states not federal government, “State government offices are closed Monday in Mississippi and Alabama for Confederate Memorial Day.” “In Georgia the day has been called "State Holiday" since 2015, when Confederate Memorial Day and Robert E. Lee's birthday were struck from the state calendar. The state holiday list says the official holiday is April 26 but will be observed this year on Monday, April 24.” https://www.governing.com/topics/politics/The-States-Still-Celebrating-Confederate-Memorial-Day-Today.html
