Juneteenth is the celebration Freedom for Slaves in Galveston Texas, in 1865, after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation by the President Lincoln in 1863. Slaveholders in Galveston, Texas decided to hold on to their slaves and not let them know they were free. On June 19, 1865, federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. This, however was two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect January, 1863. This day, the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, has become a day for African Americans to celebrate not only their freedom, but their history, culture and achievements.
