Juneteenth dates back to June 19, 1865, when Union Major General Gordon Granger landed at Galveston, Texas, with the news that the Civil War ended and the enslaved were now free. This announcement was withheld more than two and a half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
