"Together we will see Juneteenth become a national day of observance in America!"

WHAT IS JUNETEENTH? Juneteenth is an annual observance to celebrate the date Union soldiers enforced the 
Emancipation Proclamation freeing all remaining slaves in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865.  Texas was the last state in
rebellion, following the end of the Civil War, to allow enslavement. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread prior
to this, actual emancipation was not announced in the last state practicing enslavement at the end of the Civil War until
General Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas and issued
 General Order No. 3, on the "19th of June", almost two
and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the
Emancipation Proclamation.
