||Signing of the Alaska Purchase treaty
||Last Monday in March
Seward's Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. state of Alaska. It falls on the last Monday in March and commemorates the signing of the Alaska Purchase treaty on March 30, 1867. It is named for then-Secretary of State William H. Seward, who negotiated the purchase from Russia.
It should not be confused with Alaska Day, which marks the formal transfer of control over Alaska from Russia to the United States.
