GOOD MORNING … we celebrate our newest national holiday today
as “K STREET” and “WALL STREET” and POST OFFICE and banksters get day off
But most of main street has to go to work — or at least I had to – lol
While I always saw “Emancipation” doing that – it was on JAN 1st 1863 where holiday already exists
And as GOVT loves vacation days, they could now carve one out in JUNE
Thank God that civilization improved to eliminate slavery in USA & throughout world 🙂

Juneteenth is Monday, June 19, 2023! Juneteenth is the oldest-known celebration marking the end of slavery in the United States, first recognized by the state of Texas. It is also known as “Freedom Day,” “Juneteenth National Independence Day,” or “Emancipation Day.”

On January 1, 1863, in the middle of the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. It granted freedom to “all persons held as slaves” in 10 Confederate-controlled states. However, for the most part, the order was not enforced until Union soldiers were able to advance into these areas after the end of the war, the beginning of which came in April 1865 with the surrender of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee after the Battle of Appomattox Court House in Virginia. On June 19, 1865, U.S. Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger delivered to the people of Galveston, Texas, General Order No. 3, which read, in part:

“Now I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves, but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave.” –Harriet Tubman (1820–1913), American abolitionist and political activist.
