Juneteenth

I have written several articles Racism and Slavery. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on Racism and Slavery.

I always thought of myself as being pretty knowledgeable about  American history. I have to admit I found myself to be totally ignorant of Juneteenth Day. I immediately researched the day. This is what I found out. On June 19, 1865 Army Majir General Gordon Granger road to  Galveston, Texas to inform there legislature that the war was over and that there slaves were now free. Being the most South western former Confederate state they were  not aware of the status of slavery. The next year,  theat day was made a state holiday.  Texas was the first state to do so, subsequently 46 more states followed suite, along with the District of Columbia. It  currently is being proposed as a Federal holiday. It has also been referred to as  Freedom Day, Black Independence Day and Emancipation Day. I believe that it is worthy day, and should definitely be made a Federal holiday.
