On June 19, 1865, federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to announce that the Civil War had ended and that all enslaved people were free. In the past 2 years, Juneteenth has increased in popularity and become a holiday celebrated all over the United States, commemorating a more accurate and inclusive date of independence for this country.
Gather together with your fellow Gladstonians to celebrate this important holiday. Join for food from local Black-owned restaurants, fun lawn games, and music. Don’t miss out on the Black History Museum located in 107 C/D.
