CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Charlottesville City Council voted to officially remove Thomas Jefferson's birthday, April 13, as a holiday.
To replace it, Freedom and Liberation Day has been declared a holiday on March 3.
Removing celebrating Jefferson was voted on four to one with Galvin being the only "no" vote.
Adding Freedom and Liberation Day was a separate vote and was voted on unanimously.
Council also added a floating holiday to make a total of 12 holidays, meaning city employees get about the same number of holidays as Albemarle County employees.
