Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day.

Dating back to 1865, the day is to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States.

The Emancipation Proclamation went into effect Jan. 1, 1863, but it wasn't until June 19, 1865 that Union soldiers made it to Galveston, Texas, and announced the end of the Civil War.
