On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger delivered the news of the Emancipation Proclamation to Galveston, Texas, two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln has officially signed it into law. This final declaration that all Black slaves were now freed sparked the beginnings of Juneteenth, the celebration of slavery's "official" end. Many consider this day to be the United States' second Independence Day, and celebrate June 19 as a time to reflect upon history and look towards the future.
