Tuesday will be the 200th anniversary of Davis' birth, but state law sets the holiday on the first Monday in June.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans are planning a ceremony at noon on the Capitol grounds in Montgomery to recognize Davis. State Commander Leonard Wilson says more activities honoring Davis are planned for June 14.
