Juneteenth, an unknown holiday in some parts of the country, marks the anniversary of the day in 1865 that black slaves were finally set free in Texas (2+ years after the Emancipation Proclamation - it took union troops arriving in the state). Juneteenth (June 19th) is celebrated mostly in the black south. 16 states have recognized it as an official holiday. More information.
