June 19th is Juneteenth, which commemorates and honors the end of slavery in the U.S. On June 19th, 1865 (two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation), Union soldiers landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the Civil War had ended and that the enslaved were free.
