On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, with orders that all enslaved African Americans in Texas were free in accordance with the Emancipation Proclamation.

Initially, they involved church-centered community gatherings in Texas that subsequently spread across the South. Juneteenth became more prominent in the 1920s and 1930s and gained popularity during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. By the 21st century, Juneteenth was celebrated in most major cities across the U.S. Currently, activists are pushing Congress to recognize Juneteenth as a national holiday.Some African Americans celebrate Juneteenth much like the Fourth of July (American Independence Day), with events such as barbecues and family celebrations.
