What is Juneteenth?
It is an unofficial(but quickly becoming official state by state) American holiday celebrated annually on the 19th of June in the United States to commemorate Union army General Gordon Granger’s reading of federal orders in the city of Galveston, Texas, on 19 June 1865, proclaiming that all enslaved persons in the U.S. state of Texas were now free!
