The celebration of Juneteenth on June 19 marks the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army General Gordon Granger that proclaimed the freedom of enslaved people in Texas. While President Abraham Lincoln officially outlawed slavery in 1862 with the Emancipation Proclamation, Texas and a few more remote states continued to practice slavery legally. The Emancipation Proclamation declared to end slavery in all confederate states. However, slavery was still legal in two union border states - Delaware and Kentucky until December 6, 1865.
