|NEW BEGINNINGS CELEBRATION!!!
|Juneteenth, also know as Emancipation Day, celebrates the ending of slavery on June 19, 1865, in one of
the last Confederate holdouts of the Civil War — Galveston, Texas. Nearly two months after the war
ended on that date, blacks there first received official word that slavery was abolished.
After originating in Galveston, the celebration every June 19 has slowly spread and is now officially
recognized as a state holiday or state holiday observance in 25 states. Indiana does not recognize the
day as an official state holiday, but many events throughout the state, such as the one at Lyles Station,
commemorate the day.
