Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.

HD8 Democrats will be both marching in the Juneteenth Parade and staffing a booth at the festival on Welton St. from 11am - 8pm on Saturday, June17th.
