Notes:
Kazimierz Pulaski, was born March 4, 1747 and was a decorated general in the American Revolutionary War. In 1977 the Illinois General Assembly created Pulaski Day, the first Monday in March to correspond with his birth, as a state holiday. A federal holiday, Gen. Pulaski Memorial Day held every year on Oct. 11 commemmorates the anniversary of his death. School districts take March 4 off unless they receive a waiver. School districts have been increasingly asking for waivers, and this year about 60 percent of Illinois districts will choose to be in class on Pulaski Day.
