[Julian] The Question: Juneteenth commemorates the day in 1865 when slavery was ended in which state?

Answer: Juneteenth commemorates the day in 1865 when news of the Emancipation
Proclamation finally reached Texas. On June 19, 1865, federal troops
arrived in Galveston, Texas and announced that enslaved African Americans
were free. Union Army General Gordon Granger delivered the belated news
that slavery ended two and a half years earlier with President Abraham
Lincoln’s Emancipation
