Happy Juneteenth!

It's June 19, 2019, and it's officially Juneteenth. Today is the day that Union slaves reached Texas and let them know that President Abraham Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation and slavery had been abolished.

Freed slaves celebrated every June 19 as their day of freedom and now Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated around the world!
