Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day and Jubilee Day. On June 19, 1865, the Emancipation Proclamation – which was issued on January 1, 1863 – was read to newly freed African Americans in Texas by General Gordon Granger.
