- Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Celebrated annually on June 19th, it was this day in 1865 that Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. It is important that our country continues to celebrate and recognize such traditions so that we can teach our youth the history from which they came! #HappyJuneteenth #AmericanHistory #BlackHistory #OYCHoliday
