This year marks the third federal observance of Juneteenth. While the day was only recently recognized as a federal holiday, its historical and cultural importance is much older. June 19th commemorates the day in 1865 when informed Union troops finally brought word to Texas that slavery had ended, more than two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.
