|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.
