On June 19, 1865, General Gordon Granger arrived in Texas to issue General Order #3. This order did what the Emancipation Proclamation intended to do in January of 1863; enslaved people were freed! Celebrations erupted in Texas! These celebrations became known as Juneteenth. Join us as we celebrate our freedom with a FREE gospel concert, children’s activities, food vendors, and a Living History Guild presentation that recreates the moment Booker T. Washington experienced emancipation!
