Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on June 19th, celebrating the emancipation of enslaved Black Americans. It marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers, led by Major Gen. Gordon Granger, arrived in Galveston, Texas with news that the civil war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. This was two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln. The newly freed people, then known as "Negro Freedmen", celebrated their freedom on June 19th, and today, Juneteenth is celebrated by the desendants of the emancipated people worldwide.

General Order #3 was issued by Granger announcing the total emancipation of all enslaved people in the state of Texas. The Freedmen in Texas could now benefit from the Freedmen Bureau created in March 1865, to help the freed people with education, healthcare, food, jobs, and land acquisition just to name a few.
