Juneteenth is the oldest celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. It dates back to June 19th, 1865 and was the day that Union soldiers led by Major General Gordon Granger landed at Galveston, Texas with the announcement that the war had ended and that slaves were now free. This date has come to be celebrated as the end of slavery and is called Juneteenth. General Granger read to the people of Texas, General Order Number 3 which began with these words: "The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free labor." Today, Juneteenth celebrates African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures.
