It all goes back to texas, juneteenth starts really in 18 65 1 General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston texas with 2000 troops to basically take over this area that was held by the confederacy. And as part of that, he is going to let those persons who are still enslaved in texas during this time period. No, that slavery has ended obviously. This all comes down to june 19th 18 65. What happens that day in Galveston texas? What is read out and and who celebrates General Granger is the person who raised this proclamation. That says the people of texas are informed that in accordance with a proclamation from the executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and the rights of property between former masters and slaves. And the connection here to four existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor. Mhm.
