Happy Juneteenth! 6/20/21

Juneteenth, slaves are free

(UN News/)

Juneteenth officially became the country's 11th federally‐recognized holiday when President Joe Biden signed into law legislation that Congress passed earlier in the week.

What Does Juneteenth Commemorate?

On June 19, 1865 Major General Gordon Granger arrived with Union soldiers in Galveston, Texas and announced, “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free.” This was more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation abolishing slavery at the end of the Civil War.

Juneteenth is known as Emancipation Day, or Juneteenth Independence Day. The holiday has been celebrated in Galveston and across the country since 1866 with food, festivals, and song.
