Juneteenth is a celebration of the end of the enslavement of African Americans during the U.S. Civil War. Celebrated on June 19, it marks the day in 1865 that federal orders freeing slaves were read in Galveston, Texas. The official order ending slavery, known as the Emancipation Proclamation, had been made law in 1863. The holiday received its name by combining June and 19.
