Juneteenth is annually celebrated in the United States and commemorates June 19, 1865, when Gordon Granger, a Union general, arrived in Galveston, TX to inform enslaved African-Americans of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended. The holiday came to be known by its name by combining June and 19. In 2021, Juneteenth was designated as a federal holiday. The day is also sometimes called “Juneteenth Independence Day”, “Freedom Day” or “Emancipation Day.”
