Juneteenth

June 19, 2021 (115 days away)

Juneteenth celebrates the freedom of former enslaved people after the defeat of the Confederate states and President Lincoln's signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Although emancipation was granted in September 1862, news was slow to spread in the South, but by June 1865, the federal order made its way to Texas, bringing freedom to the last slavery state and establishing a day of celebration.

June 19th was officially commemorated in New York in 2004 and declared a state holiday in New York by Governor Cuomo in 2020.
