Juneteenth, or June 19th, is an annual holiday to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. On this date in 1865, slavery ended in Texas nearly three years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, issued September 22, 1862. Texas, which was part of the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War, had long ignored Lincoln’s proclamation. So Army General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops traveled to the port of Galveston, Texas, to make the announcement to Texans.
