The Secret History of Juneteenth

Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 7 p.m.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is considered the oldest celebration that commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger entered Galveston, Texas with 2,000 troops. He issued General Order 3, which declared an end to slavery more than two years after President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.  Many slaves were unaware of the Emancipation degree of January 1, 1863, because of Texas's isolation and the slow movement of news about the Civil War.
