JUNETEENTH - Juneteenth or Freedom Day is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, TX with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Sadly, this was 2.5 years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
