Juneteenth, or June 19th, 1865, is considered the date when the last captives in America were freed. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread before this, actual emancipation did not come until General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas and issued General Order No. 3, on June 19th, 1865, almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
