Ahh, Texas…..what a place…maybe we can make the whole country just like Texas. (Okay, I adamit it. I’m not being fair. Most of the Texans I’ve met have been really nice people. Especially the ones that would be Mexicans if the U.S. hadn’t of created a fake war to steal land.)
Bradenton Herald | 06/18/2006 | Juneteenth event celebrates historic milestone
The last slaves in the country were freed 140 years ago in Galveston, Texas. Though the Emancipation Proclamation dates to Jan. 1, 1863, it took more than two years for news to reach the Texas city, which was mostly controlled by the Confederates then.
On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops entered Galveston Island to enforce the proclamation.
Juneteenth, believed to be derived from the “June” and “19,” has been celebrated ever since.
