The History of Juneteenth...
Juneteenth or June 19, 1865, is considered the date when the last slaves in America were freed. Although the rumors of freedom were widesperad prior to this, actual emancipation did not come until General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops rode into Galveston, Texas and issued General Order No. 3 on June 19, 1865 (almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation).
“Juneteenth celebrations are held in most, if not all, 50 states. Over half of the states now have some form of legislation or declaration establishing Juneteenth as a holiday or ‘special day of recognition.’” -www.juneteenth.com
