June 19 Juneteenth anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. The word “Juneteenth” comes from the words “June” and “19th”, which according to southern folklore is when the slaves of Texas first learned of their freedom. Though technically freed in 1863, the slaves did not learn of their freedom until the arrival of the Union soldiers on June 19th, 1865. This was after the end of the Civil War and 2 1/2 years after the proclamation was first issued.
