AFRICAN AMERICAN & FRIENDS
Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC sent out a Call for ATTENDANCE to those who find it significant to their heritage to JOIN US - to where they see themselves in the global sphere in year 2016 - their historic responsibility to claim the day, to remember the worth of the day, to contribute mightily to where a People called African American became free through an Executive Order by Abraham Lincoln, 16th President but it was 2 1/2 years later in Galveston, Texas that African American were freed. Reason said - it took the Union officer Gordon Granger and the Union soldiers 2 1/2 years to arrived in Texas with the message of the law, the Emancipation Proclamation.
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the
ending of slavery in the United States.
Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by
Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war
had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
Note that this was two and a
half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had
become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little
impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the
new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of
1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally
strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.
The Emancipation Proclamation was a presidential proclamation and executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863. In a single stroke, it changed the federal legal status of more than 3 million enslaved people in the designated areas of the South from "slave" to "free".
